About

Love of books. Love of art. Passion for antique fashion.

I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, where my parents worked at the Bolshoi Theatre. From my youngest days, many of which were spent backstage and in the costume hall I aquired passionate love of costumes and everything to do with ballet and opera. My other passion is books, the classics in particular, that is why my artwork generally reflects classic literature characters and period costumes.

I find my inspiration for paintings in books, regency fashion plates, victorian catalog illustrations, antique photographs, works of great masters of old, photos I come across on the internet, period drama and nature.

My work usually starts as a thought as I am reading (or rereading) a good book, as an idea, I then run downstairs to quickly sketch it or at least write down the idea. I normally work on nice, thick 140 lbs. cold press watercolor paper. Sketching is the hardest and most labor intensive part of the process for me. Then comes the stretching of the paper to make sure it does not get bumpy during the painting and the best part, applying the watercolors.
