Zeeland, MI, United States

Life in different cultures, travels to 23 countries, lots of dramatic changes and diverse work experience-all these effected who I am and what I want to express through my art. In 1982 I graduated with Master Degree in Education with a specialization in Foreign Languages and Literature from Tyumen State University in Siberia, Soviet Union, and began teaching English and Art. Had many exhibits there with dozens of paintings in private collections in different countries. After 10 years of teaching, in the midst of a collapsing Soviet Union, I had to make a difficult decision to leave Russia with two daughters. We immigrated to the US with an incredible support of a local American family whom I helped through their adoption process in Siberia couple years earlier. In the US I worked as an adoption specialist for 16 years before devoting myself entirely to art in early 2012.
