Artist Statement

My passion is rooted in the years of classical Russian training that I received at the Stieglitz St. Petersburg State Academy of Art. My purpose is to create sophisticated, powerful artworks that engage and stimulate the viewers, whether it is the public at large or a specific target audience.

I was fortunate to grow up in St. Petersburg, Russia. As one of the world’s most beautiful and cultural cities, it afforded me valuable exposure to diverse domestic and traveling exhibits at The Hermitage and The Russian Museum.

Such experience ignited my interests early in life. The excitement of just standing in front of an art masterpiece never got old. By studying and admiring the artist’s creativity, I felt as if I were in a conversation with the masters across time.
