About

Traditional painting of the Russian North – Boretsk painting.

Hello, my name is Olga and I’m a painter from Arkhangelsk – one of the oldest cities in the Russian North. I’ve been painting for the whole my life and I took to art painting in 2000. The basis of my works is Boretsk art painting which is supposed to be the most difficult one. It takes from 4 days to 1 month to produce one item, depending on complexity of the raw part and subject.

I try to create each object not only beautiful but telling its own story as well. The main subjects I use: folk craft and everyday life of Northern people, handicraft, holidays.

All the products in this shop are decorations for interior of your house: matryoshka dolls, eggs, apples, caskets. They are not meant for children and demand care.

If you have questions or you’d like to make an individual order, you are always welcome to write me a personal message.

Thank you for dropping into my shop :)
