I've been working in different textile techniques for all my life and I achieved a good enough level at many of them. I made my first patchwork blanket in my youth by intuition, actually, I even didn't know the term "patchwork". In our country art-quilting isn't as popular as in foreign countries where it becomes nowadays a detached kind of fine art.
The uncommonness and comparative newness of this technique attracts me as well as its rich creative potential and permanent quest for inspiration. So each work is particular and unique.
I'm a participant and finalist of many regional, national and international exhibitions, festivals and competitions. My quilted pictures are being bought for private collections in various countries.
This is the list of the main exhibitions:
