About Olga Minina

Welcome to my page.
My name is Olga Minina, I am an attorney and self-taught artist.
I was born in 1973 and live in Russia. I studied music as a child.
My path to painting was long. I have 2 higher educations: the first is in the field of culture, the second is legal.
I have been working as an attorney for 21 years. I have achieved many heights in my profession, in 2015 I was awarded the badge "Honorary Advocate of the Sakhalin Region".
At the same time, I have always gravitated towards creativity, but my perfectionism prevented me from expressing myself. In the spring of 2019, I challenged him and started painting to become more free. Therefore, the theme of inner freedom in my work is one of the main ones.
Painting is my passion. My art is my philosophy of life. Through art, I found a way to myself. Now my life is filled with harmony and beauty flows from my heart.
I am an artist with varied interests and abilities. I am attracted by everything new and unknown.
I think I am the most passionate artist in the world because I love what I do. I convey my feelings, emotions, thoughts in color. Some plots come to me in a dream when I just start to fall asleep. I have a lot of ideas that I want to translate into my paintings and share them with you.
An interesting fact is that there are a lot of lawyers among famous artists. Henry Matisse, Wassily Kandinsky, Mikhail Vrubel and many others. And this is not casual. Scientists have found that people who can think creatively are intellectuals. It was not for nothing that Albert Einstein noted that "creativity is the entertainment of the intellect."
Thank you for your attention to my work.
