I was born in southern Russia, where I grew up in a tiny village in the Caucasian mountains. The village Gunaika was surrounded by the wild beauty of the Caucasus.
Later I emigrated to England, where I took a degree in art at the Kent Institute of Art&Design. Now I live in Ramsgate, working as a professional artist.
I feel I have never belonged to any art movement or anything like that. In my work I try to fill my canvases in the most beautiful way possible. I love to paint and absorb nature, both in detailed close-up and looking from a distance. Since childhood I have always passionately loved nature and in my work I try to capture the beauty of the world we live in.
