About

Devoted for silk painting lovers

RUSSIA
After receiving MA's in Fine Arts with a major in Oil painting and Art history from the Khabarovsk Fine Art & Graphic University Far East of Russia. I spent the first 10 years in my artistic career as a teacher in ART College While teaching in Art College I discovered and fell in love with the mystery and magic of Painting on Silk.Paining on Silk became my main technique for more than 20 years now.

UNITED STATES
In 1997, Me and my family decided to move to the US.
I arrived in Denver in 1997 with but a few hundred dollars in my pocket and a passion for Painting. As difficult as it was to start my career from scratch in a new country, the artist's talents and incredible work ethics helped me find my place in the competitive artistic word.

The frolic of creative work, joys and challenges are the true sources of an artist's happiness and inspiration.
My paintings are exhibited in galleries and art shows and my silk wall hangings are being purchased extensively for public and private collections.

ABOUT PAINTING ON SILK
Yes, painting on silk is creating art on fabric, with silk as a canvas. Why silk painting? Each technique has its own beauty. For people who can enjoy different texture silk is a pleasure for the eyes. The shimmer and transparency of silk creates a delightful surface, good to touch when you are wearing peace of silk or to have it as a painting on your wall.

MY SILK PAINTINGS
My paintings are made of dye and acrylic paint on silk. While painting, I always use the finest quality Chinese Silk. When applied, liquid dyes and paints flow and move in a way that is truly exhilarating to watch! In order to stop this movement, a material called a resist is used which not only stops the dyes from moving on the silk, but also creates an outline for the image being depicted, adding dramatic dimension. Once the painting is completed, the dyes need to be steam-fixed in order for them to become color-fast. This also causes the colors to become brighter and more intense. The piece is then stretched, painted on the sides, and ready to hang.

I like to work in different genres: still-life, landscape, flowers, cityscape, fish and ponds as well as symbolic figurative compositions. When drawing women's gentle and mysterious images I express Joy, Peace, and harmony. To me, harmony is poetry of lines and colors that have a life of its own.

MY ETSY SHOP SILKbyLENA

My Etsy Shop Is a branch derived from my own website. The Shop is designed mostly as a gift shop with high quality fine art Giclee prints on Canvas and Fine art paper. All Images are enhanced using digital techniques.
You can always find a few small original paintings here.

But if you decide to have a bigger size or variety of themes you are welcome to visit my website www.sidorovart.com where you can buy paintings and prints safely through PayPal. I also have a display on www.ugallery.com.

My FAVORITE THINGS
I live in beautiful, Colorado with my lovely husband, who is also an artist, my teenage son, and our two sweet cats. Aside from painting, I like hiking, biking, and cross country skiing on various trails.

Every day in the morning go to my studio turn on Pandora radio with my favorite music and forget about all the cares in the world.
