I'm originally from Eastern Europe, Ukraine, was graduated in architecture from Kyiv Art School.
Besides architectural and engineering disciplines I took extra artist’s classes, got academic training in drawing, painting, sculpture, composition, photography.
I moved to the USA (permanent Maryland resident, US citizen) and work in Maryland, Virginia, and DC as an architectural designer for more than 15 years.
During my architectural career, I was doing a lot of architectural rendering and hand sketching besides construction documents and design.
For all these years and especially for the last ten years I found myself spending more and more time painting and making collages and lately I was very productive in creating a series of pieces in mixed media collage style, of found objects, different painting media, and upcycled materials.
I was a member of the Maryland Federation of Art and my works were exhibited in Annapolis, Bethesda, and Rockville.
Also some of my art pieces are in the collections of my architectural clients.
