I was born and raised in Leningrad (St. Petersburg), Russia and now live and work in Arnhem, the Netherlands. I have a Master of Sciences degree in Physics from the University of St.Petersburg and also Bachelor degrees in Finance and Translation. In my career I worked as a technical engineer, chief accountant, quality manager and translator/interpreter. From my youth and prior education I have always been in contact with art. This has always been in my interest.
Painting has become my passion. It litteraly grabbed me and never let me go. Deepening into the background of a painting, its composition and appearance, is something that can completely occupy me.
Making a painting by directing the spontaneous process on the canvas in such a way that the work comes to life, is extremely intense and gives a lot of satisfaction.
