Born in Uzbekistan, lived in Russia and educated in America I love to visit new parts of the world. Travel helped me grow to internally and thus greatly enriched my art.
Life is my passion, and I am in awe the beauty around me. I love to observe those around me and enjoy meeting new people. Fascination with aesthetics inspires my every piece of work. Studying Temple University’s Tyler School of Art taught me to see the world with keen eyes, express my creative passions, and most of all my time at Tyler made me a more disciplined and responsible person. Art is relief from any illnesses that may befall me, and have found doodling helps lead to solutions to all the problems in life. Above all I find humor in the sad situations that surround us.
When not immersed in my work, you can find me on the slopes snowboarding, playing badminton and or communing with nature while hiking. I love physical activities!Currently, Philadelphia is my home where I work in graphic and web design.
