I was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and grew up in the Midwestern United States. After receiving my BFA in illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, I became a freelance illustrator and fine artist. I now work in my home studio in Buffalo, creating illustrations for various clients in magazine and book publishing, advertising and stationery.
My miniature pen and acryla gouache paintings are inspired by my love of home and the comfort of everyday objects, as well as more magical, mysterious and melancholy themes.
