Coming Events
My art is strongly influenced by my cultural background, and is based on classical drawing techniques developed and honed in a traditional Russian School of Art.
My preference is to draw from life -
portraits, still life, and plein air landscapes/seascapes -  with my preferred mediums being
 oil, pastel and charcoal. 
I am regularly approached to undertake commissions for private portraits, and to date have completed literally hundreds of sketches.

Nowadays, when so many artists simply rely on copying static images and photographs, I am proud to demonstrate my creativity, imagination and technical skills in drawing from life freehand!
My annual exhibition "Colours of Capricorn" in the Kern Arcade, East Street, Rockhampton, is scheduled for 13-25 November 2018. Everyone is welcome!

You can book a place in my pastel and oil workshops through Rockhampton Art Gallery:

- One day oil painting workshop is scheduled for 20 January 2019 (Sunday). Find out more here: https://www.rockhamptonartgallery.com.au/Programs/Dynamic-Still-Life-in-Pastels

Selected range of paintings is on display and available for purchase through Mi Art shop of art supplies on East Street, Rockhampton.
