I am an American artist whose life began on the other side of the world. Born and
raised in the Ukraine, I graduated from the National Academy of Fine Arts and
Architecture in Kiev, before immigrating to the United States and settling in New
Jersey in 2010. These multi-cultural experiences have offered me the ability to
convey a unique perspective to the classical realistic style found within my artwork.

In this series of colored pencil, pen and graphite drawings, I am presenting my NJ
Emerging Artist Series solo exhibition entitled, Life As I See It. My goal is to offer
classical realistic representations of all aspects of life including, portraits, daily
scenes, iconic and little known destinations, as well as architectural interiors and
exteriors. While the subject matter may appear wide at first impression, all my
drawings are tied to my passionate desire to capture and express the world around
me in a highly detailed and realistic fashion. This body of work is simultaneously
uniquely my own but also familiar in the eyes of the viewer. The atmosphere and
mood of the work are the most important elements for me and with each piece I
am trying to convey the feeling of that moment.
