I studied art at Smolensk State University for 5 years and graduated in 1997 with major in teaching art. I taught art to middle school students in Smolensk for 4 years. In 2001 I got married and soon became full time mom.
In 2012 my husband was transferred with his job to Cambridge, UK. This is where I started to paint on regular basis and was accepted as a member of the Cambridge drawing society in April 2014. This membership allowed me to participate in exhibitions. Here are the most important ones:
Cambridge Drawing Society Guildhall Exhibition 2014, 2015
Cambridge Drawing Society Pitt Building Exhibition 2016
Cambridge Drawing Society Leys School Exhibition 2014, 2015
I also participated in The Artist and Leisure Painter Open Art Competition in partnership with Patchings Art Centre (Nottingham, UK) 2016. This is something, I am really proud of, because qualification and selection of artists was very rigorous.
In Oct 2016 my husband was transferred to RTP with his job again and I plan to continue my painting, this time in North Carolina.
