I am 52 years old, I am a professional artist, live and work in Istanbul.

I studied art at the Pedagogical Institute, worked as a teacher of painting, a designer, a graphic artist in a newspaper, an artist in a puppet theater…
But for more than 20 years I have been a completely free artist, and creativity is my main activity, which makes me very happy!))

I paint my pictures, travel all over the world, participate in Russian and international projects, exhibitions, art symposiums, art fairs.

During this time I have created more than 3,000 paintings, and now they live in private collections in more than 20 countries. From 1993 to the present day, I have taken part in more than 300 exhibitions in Russia and abroad, 10 of them were personal. Since 2002 I have been a member of the Union of Artists of Russia.

I illustrated two books by my beloved Lewis Carroll for the Moscow publishing house «Arbor» in 2009 «Alice in Wonderland», in 2011 «Alice Through the Looking Glass», these books were republished several times in Russian and were highly appreciated by collectors and bibliophiles from different countries.

Over the 15 years of working with acrylic, I have developed several authors techniques and created 12 different master classes and 5 authors training courses based on them, which I held in different cities and countries.

Since 2018, I have been passionate about developing my own online school.

creativity for me is a game that opens the fan of reality into millions of meanings.
