I am a self-taught artist based in Mill Hill, North London. I moved to London from Russia in 2010 and joined mentoring sessions for artists at the Insight School of Art in Whetstone in 2017.
I am inspired by the beauty of nature around us - its colours, light, shape, ever changing scenery… My work is filled by my personal, sentimental experiences and nostalgic memories; painting is my way to re-connect with places and moments that are precious to me.
More recently, I have been recording North London scenes I come across every day. During the lockdown I continued to paint a local landscape, particularly around Mill Hill, where I spend a lot of time walking with my family and my dog.
I work mainly in oils, in style that refences Realism and Romanticism.
