I have been interested in art since I was a child. My great passion was drawing and painting. One of my dreams was to open my own art gallery and painting school. The dream came true. But with dreams, it is better to be careful. It soon turned out that managing the art gallery, building offers, contacts with artists, organizing exhibitions, and conducting lessons took up all my free time.
I had to make difficult decisions to have time to paint.
A few months ago I hired competent staff in a gallery and moved to the countryside away from the noisy city. I finally found time to create and show my paintings to the world. I am very glad that I succeeded.
