I am a painter and photographer from Moscow, Russia. A pediatric neurologist by training, I always loved to draw and take photographs as a hobby. With time, my passion for painting and photography grew into my second career. After I stopped practicing medicine about 9 years ago, I attended watercolor painting classes at the Natalia Baccury private Art School for a year, followed by another 3 years of formal art education at the Academy of Watercolor of Sergey Andriyaka and Academy of Photography in Moscow.
Since 2003, I have participated in various exhibitions in Russia, my primary focus was watercolor painting and since 2005, I have participated in exhibitions as a photographer.
Since moving to Connecticut in 2007, my main focus has been abstraction with surrealistic accents I call "Glass in Motion”.
I use mixed techniques and print on aluminum.
