I was born in Russia and moved to Canada 10 years ago. Although I majored in philology, I was always involved in art. Since I was a kid, I remember going on plein air painting with my dad. While he was not a professional artist, he always drew and painted. I have a collection of his paintings in my cottage. After University, I worked for many years in a puppet theatre, where I started to make puppets and decorations; I always aspired to make things with my hands. After theatre, I switched to graphic design, publishing and interior design.
After moving to Canada, I completed a program in Interior Design at Ryerson University. At around the same time, I tried pottery for the first time, and immediately fell in love. Right now I split my time between working as a home stager and decorator in Toronto and pursuing my passion in pottery. Few years ago we bought a cottage in the beautiful Pointe-Au-Baril and set up my pottery studio here. Now I split my time between Toronto and Pointe-Au-Baril year around.
