Russian-born, spent early years in New York City. After marriage settled in Greenwich, Connecticut.
Graduated from the Famous Artists School in the fine arts
Became a member of the Greenwich Art  Society, the Old Greenwich Art Society and the Stamford Art Association.
Exhibiting in all their member shows.
Held a solo art exhibit at the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Ct.
Unfortunately, for financial reasons my passionate art activities had to be put on hold.
As a well trained musician I taught private piano lessons for the next 30 years.
Now that I’ve moved to the lovely town of Aiken, S.C. I resumed painting again, passionately!
Joined the Aiken Artist Guild and the Aiken Center for the Arts.
Have exhibited in their member shows. The South Carolina State Fair. The Kroc Center in Augusta.
In 2013,  donated  an inspired work called “An Encounter of Faith and Hope’, which was  was painted exclusively for the Lydia Project.
A painting is a visual escape. It reminds us of a place  we’ve been, or perhaps a place we long to be.
So, come with me…to that distant path…. that sea shore….hear the sweet song of a meadow…..feel the tranquility of a lovely sunset…
hear the crashing cymbals of ocean waves upon the rocks….or feel that triumphant power in a mighty waterfall.
During the whole painting process, I’m swept away by the rhythm  and the music  of the subject.
Nature indeed is the art work of God.
The heavens and the earth rejoice and sing with the beauty that God created for us to enjoy.
I am thankful that through His gift of sight and talent I can attempt to interpret  His handiwork on my canvas.
My goal is that you, the viewer will find that same joy I feel  as I portray the beauty God creates for us each and every day.
