I was born in Siberia in 1967. My father was self taught artist and he taught my mom to. Unfortunately they divorce and I stayed with my grandma for a wile.;
I was drawing since I can hold pencil in my hands, but never thought about it like my future job. Later when I began to leave with mom in Uzbekistan I was helping her in work (mostly it was designs of offices).;
At 15 I started to draw some portraits by pencil, and later watercolors.;
At 18 I suddenly discovered in myself a talent for dance and choreography and every thing else was forgotten. My drawings was related to dance. But in that time I began designing the costumes (later, turned to designing my cloth, and party dresses), I also made jewelry for the stage (now I am beading jewelry for my self ), study beauty of forms in posed dancing ( like Indian classic dances), study the lighting ( because was take care about all things in dancing show on the stage.;
I was interesting more in oriental choreography, so circumstances (or Destiny?) brought me to work as a belly dancer to Jordan .;
Ones I saw how one Iraqi artist painting on black velvet. I was shocked, astound by it's contrast! My mom was with me at that time and she could explain to me some beginnings of oil work. I started, scared.;
Later there, in Jordan, I was on the stage I meet my husband (I was foretold about meeting him many years before by a Russian fortuneteller ). Now I live in Egypt, Cairo.;
I love this country and this city. I do not working as a dancer anymore but I give privet lessons. And here I finally understood how mach painting (especially oil) means for me. That is what I love to do until end of my life.
