I began to paint and make sculptures at a very young age, inspired by the magic and colors of the circus. Born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia, a place which embraces three centuries of great artists, I never had a problem to find my own inspiration for creating art. In 1989, I moved to California, where I continued to pursue a career in visual arts, while integrating new experiences into my life. There are had been many changes in every single aspect of my creative process through the course of all these years, but the only thing that remained constant in my connection to art from the very beginning was that special joy, the feeling which continues to be the driving force of my inspiration. This joy is the force that energizes me and creates the most blissful environment for me as an artist.
