My life as an artist began in Moscow in an ordinary art school. I didn't always know I would be an artist. I never liked drawing or painting but my tutors always told me I could be good artist if I was not so lazy; they said that I should do more work for art study and not keep creating something new. Everything has been done before me and I must study the styles of other artists. But I always thought that what made another people great was not interesting any more; what was interesting was the process of painting; for me, a picture dies it’s finished. After I finished art school, I forgot about painting for a long time. After I had married and moved to England, my husband bought me a child’s watercolour set. We were quite in need of money. First, I painted a dog which sold immediately; but I really hated doing it; if paint, need paint what you really like - what you really can do best. Colours and composition are my passion, I enjoy making “mess” and creating from it a picture.... Even after finishing a picture lot of people say that my paintings have a lot movement and life - I hope they do. I know if you want say something to people you can try to do it with art - everyone can do it!!!
