I studied art at Smolensk State University for 5 years and graduated in 1997 with major in teaching art. I taught art to middle school students in Smolensk for 4 years. In 2001 I got married and soon became full time mom.In 2012 my husband was transferred with his job to Cambridge, UK. This is where I started to paint on regular basis and was accepted as a member of the Cambridge drawing society in April 2014.
