1971. Live and work in Volgograd, Russia. Drawing and painting became my greatest passion since I was 3 years old.I believe in the healing power of harmony. I am happy when I manage to create a beautiful image. On finishing another painting, I hang it on a wall just opposite my bed, and leave it so for a test period of several weeks. As I lay in my bed relaxing after a hard day, the picture is right before my eyes, revealing any hidden virtues, unnoticed before. Some of the pictures prove to be so pleasant to my relaxing eyes, that I feel how the tiles of my mind, disturbed during a busy day, calm down back to normal state, and how the only desire, to have some rest, is replaced by renewed curiosity and fantasy.
