I was born in the USSR in 1960. I graduated from college and worked for a few years as an architect in my Ukrainian hometown. In 1989, I came to Philadelphia as a political refugee, and went back to school. I graduated from the architectural program at Temple University in 1992, and I've been working as an architect ever since.
My professional work was unable to satisfy my creative urge. I wanted to express myself freely, without constraints of the budget and building codes. I attended private painting classes for seven years and worked in my own studio in Philadelphia for eleven years. It was there that I developed my own unique painting style.
For the last four years, I have lived and worked in New Orleans. I create my paintings at Studio Inferno at 3000 Royal Street in the Bywater. I love New Orleans and hope to contribute to its diverse and growing artistic community.
