I began my journey as an artist at a very young age having inherited an artistic ability from my father. I was born and grew up in the Ukraine.
At the age of 12, after passing an entrance examination, I began a rigorous Classical Old Masters Art Education Programme, which would take me almost 10 years to complete.
I immigrated to New Zealand in 1992 and started painting full-time, while constantly continuing my art education.
My style is best described as Contemporary Realism in watercolour, oils, and drawing mediums.
Commissions and art tuition welcomed.
