Welcome to the AOS gallery.
We look forward to meeting you during the tour.
I was born and raised in St. Petersburg Russia.
In June 1999, I moved to the USA. In 2000 I graduated from Adult Education School, English as a Second Language Program. Fall of 2000, I became a student at Three Rivers Community College. In 2005 I became a Registered Nurse specializing in Wound Care.
I always had a passion for health and healing. I had been studying and practicing different healing modalities such as Reiki, CranioSacral Therapy, Healing Touch, Su – Jok Therapy; and became certified in Hypnotherapy, Auricular acupuncture (detox), and Reconnective Healing. In 2014, I completed Master’s Degree Program in Integrative Health and Healing,
My artistic journey started in the fall of 2017. I returned from a trip to my homeland - Russia. It was not a regular visit of my family or vacation. It was worst tragedy in my life. I lost my dad, who was my life mentor and best friend.
Suddenly I had a desire to paint. I truly believe it was the Universal power, which guided me to be able to cope with my grief.
I started seeing different images and pictures which appeared in my head like a slide show. When I'm working on a picture that came into my head it flows from my heart. It almost seems effortless charged with unseen energy. Some images come to my mind spontaneously others are inspired by nature and beauty.
My work is primarily in acrylic paint on canvas, I also do some work on wood, goose eggs, candles, and stones.
