Natalia Moroz (printmaking)
I'm a fine art printmaker and illustrator, a member of the American Color Print Society and Los Angeles Printmaking Society. From childhood reading and drawing were my passions, and I combined them by illustrating my favorite books. The further I develop as an artist, the more I use literature only as a starting point to express my personal views, ideas, and feelings.

My main medium is the linocut printmaking. It is a relief printing technique (similar to woodcut) in which a sheet of linoleum is used for the relief surface. The design is drawn on…

Natalia Moroz (printmaking)
I'm a fine art printmaker and illustrator, a member of the American Color Print Society and Los Angeles Printmaking Society. From childhood reading and drawing were my passions, and I combined them by illustrating my favorite books. The further I develop as an artist, the more I use literature only as a starting point to express my personal views, ideas, and feelings.

My main medium is the linocut printmaking. It is a relief printing technique (similar to woodcut) in which a sheet of linoleum is used for the relief surface. The design is drawn on a linoleum plate. Then everything that shall remain unpainted, is cut away with the use of a knife or a tool called gouge. Next the plate is covered with the ink. The final print is produced by pressing the paper firmly against the inked plate using a hand operated press.
Original prints in color can be produced in several ways. Reduction method is a printmaking technique when a multi-colored print is made with the use of a single block. Through a series of progressive cuttings, inkings, and printings, the image slowly emerges while the actual block is destroyed. A reduction print can therefore never be reprinted.
Another method of colored printing requires a separate plate for every shape of a particular color and each color is printed on a separate run.

My work has been shown in several galleries in North Carolina, New Jersey, Texas, and Washington and is featured in numerous private collections throughout the United States, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, and Great Britain. I've done freelance illustrations for Book Review sections of the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, The Community Gardening and North Carolina Literary Review magazines.

Sergey Zhiboedov (jewelry)
Having an extensive fine art background, Sergey combines deep knowledge of art history, refined taste, vivid imagination, and the ability to turn his artistic fantasies and inspirations into accurate and realistic renderings. Some of Sergey's jewelry pieces are designed by himself, some by me. Our creative collaboration resulted in producing jewelry which can be truly called wearable art.

Working in the jewelry design field from 1995, Sergey has developed superb craftsmanship skills of a jewelry model maker. His attention to detail is incredible. A natural perfectionist, he creates his models, sets stones, and finishes his pieces under the lenses of a microscope, so they are flawless not only to a naked eye but under any magnification.

Lev Moroz (printmaking)
Growing in a family of artists, Lev was introduced to arts in early age. Eventually, he started doing linocuts when he was 13 and proved to have a good eye for graphics. He likes animals and tries to depict them in their natural environment. Lev is also interested in Medieval knights and armor. Now his portfolio includes over a dozen of linocuts. Lately, Lev has been taking classes in drawing, painting, and design. Lev's artworks have been purchased by collectors in the US, Japan, Netherlands, Australia, and New Zealand.
