I am a visual artist, born in St. Petersburg but raised and living in Auroville since I was two years old.

When I first started drawing as a teenager, I used pencils most often, and sometimes acrylic paint. Then I got more into using charcoal as my medium before I switched to oil paints, which is what I mainly use now, and occasionally acrylics. I tend to paint more in black and white than color.

I always liked drawing and painting portraits; it’s what I do most. I have also done other types of paintings, like seascapes, nature, and animals. I always copy from a photograph for anything I paint. In recent years I’ve started doing more custom art for people, where they send me a photo of a portrait or anything, and I make it into a painting.
