Very early in my life, I showed a passion for an art; a devotion that my parents, professional designers, approvingly stimulated me to follow. I can refer to my father the most for mentoring me in my earliest progress as an artist.
I finished an Art School in Minsk, Belarus, then graduated from Easel Graphic Arts Department of Belarusian Academy of Arts (1995-2001). Throughout my academic studies my artistic abilities were recognized by my teachers and peers, and after a graduation I was awarded a grant from Creative Academic Studios . At the same time, I was teaching drawing at Belarusian Academy of Arts.
Despite the fact that my career as a printmaker and a teacher was short lived ( me and my husband moved to Canada at 2003 ), however, I discovered my current interest in the field of watercolour. I developed a unique combination of using a transparent watercolour and an oil pastel together, which gives to my paintings so intense and colourful look.
Now I have been living in Ottawa Area with my husband and kids for over a decade. We are enjoing to be outside as much as possible, and not surprising it has got an impact on my art. In most of my landscapes I depict vibrant views from different places of Ottawa and Outaouais Region.
My artworks can be found in many private collections in Canada, Poland, Germany, Belarus, as well as in the Art Collection of Belarusian National Gallery of Arts.
