I am 27 years old, living in Vasa, Finland with my adorable family. My husband Alexey is a highly educated sculptor and my two children are Lucia 2,5 years old and Novalilja 4 months. We also have 4 lovely cats!
Currently I am staying home with Novalilja but as I can´t imagine leaving studio for a year, I paint and draw at home and in the week-ends.
About one year ago I also started teaching in different evening courses. Currently I am teaching portrait painting in Vasa Arbis. I enjoy teaching and sharing everything I know about painting, as well as my tremendous love for it.
Painting is my great passion and I feel very fortunate to be able to do it as much as I want and to be able to make a living out of it. I want to specialize in painting children´s portraits, but any portrait is a great and challenging honour to do and I love every moment of it. I also paint still life and other things by commission, as well as my own "intuitive" paintings.
Please don´t hesitate contacting me for any type of commission, exhibition or other project.
