I'm a 3rd generation artist born in the Ukraine and immigrated to United States in 1991.
The most vivid memories I have of my childhood were the many days I spent painting, sculpting and drawing. My immigration from Ukraine to the Unites States changed many things for me and I am thankful for the opportunity to do something I love and be able to express myself in a way that is, I hope, inspirational to others.
Shortly after moving to Chicago, I was introduced to Leon Oks, an artist whose work has inspired me greatly. I have been taking art lessons in his Studio for several years.
Inspired by Art Nouveau and amazed by the endless beauty of Orchids, I developed my unique style and technique, which gave me the ability to share my vision and feelings with a viewers. I unite line work of figures, brushstrokes, colors and nature in one single form of harmony and beauty.
In November of 2009 my artwork has been published in the Best of America Oil Artists, Volume II book.
