I discovered painting unexpectedly when my friends took me to some 'design and wine' evening.  After working for more then 30 years in the Information Technology fields  and never touching the paint, I stumbled into something which gives me so much joy.  I can't believe how lucky I am !


 My painting voyage started in 2017 when I started taking  some classes.  I am still experimenting with different styles and media trying to find my real voice.  Feel free to contact me with any comments or suggestions.

I am lucky enough not to worry if my paintings are sold or not,  but feel free to talk to me if you want something personal.

Here is an article in "Goroshanka"  (the magazine published in California for Russian speaking audience.
