The painting is beautiful and true to the photo. Irina responded to emails and had the painting done very quickly. I will absolutely buy from her again.

Great communication; the portrait was beautiful despite my not being able to provide the best pictures!
An artist from Ukraine
I grew up in Ukraine, a country with great nature and rich culture and history. I was painting and creating since I was a little girl. I can’t remember what was the magic that inspired me to become an artist because I don’t remember when it started. It just was with me for all my life. Even after I entered medical school (which was my parent’s huge dream), I continued to draw and make my own exhibitions during university holidays. After graduation, the first year of medical practice was enough for me to understand that it’s not my dream job. At the same time I met my future husband. So I moved to the US with him and quit all the medicine with no shade of regret.
New country and my husband’s incredible support gave me freedom to finally start doing what I always had been dreaming about. I love painting! When I create, time flies by, I forget about everything and dive into this divine feeling of serene pure beauty of my subject. And I want to share this feeling with you through my work.
Originally, my Etsy store started with custom pet portrait commissions. I just wanted to share my love for animals and a joy of capturing their sweet little shiny eyes on canvas :) I really enjoy reading beautiful stories about my customer's pet, getting to know them almost like my own.
Later I realized, that there are other things that attracts me. Among them is the ocean. There is a believe that water is capable of holding information. In many cultures people use water for all kinds of rituals. I spend a lot of time near the ocean, it gives me inspiration and desire to create. The ocean is hypnotising, it’s strong and calm, bright and threatening, loving and beautiful, there is so much about it that I want to say!!! So I do, on my canvas.
Now I live in Burlingame, CA with my wonderful husband and the best dog in the world Sophie, who I love with all my heart. And I love you, beautiful and creative people! Thank you for your interest! :)
