Based in United Kingdom
I am a professional artist and a member of Visual Arts of Scotland. I live and work in my home studio in Innerleithen, Scottish Borders. I have exhibited extensively in my native Ukraine, and have undertaken prestigious commissions, again in Ukraine. I have been painting since I can remember and I really, really enjoy it. I have now settled in Scotland and now consider myself a Scottish artist. I am now building my reputation as an artist in my new adopted homeland.
I paint in oils and I am absolutely fascinated by natural shades, contrasts, textures etc.
In my Scottish paintings I try to capture my own mood and mix this with the mood nature presents for me to paint.
Every painting is unique for me because I put my soul and passion into every work, and I never know where my imagination and nature's inspiration will take me next. Since arriving to this beautiful country, Scotland has inspired me to try to capture her light and form. I have painted and sold many Scottish seascapes and Scottish landscapes including Glamis and Kilchurn Casle, Loch Ness and Loch Lomond, Bass Rock, Plockton, Glen Coe and many other areas of natural beauty.
