I was born in Odessa Ukraine in 1980. As a kid most of my time was spent imagining possibilities, creating one thing or another, whether it was doll clothes out of the limited materials around the house, drawing and sketching weird images that no one understood and playtime was usually creating my own little worlds. My family came to the united states in 1989 and throughout going to school my focus continued to be on everything art related, whether it was designing, fashion avant garde sketching and water coloring to sculpting. When I left home and now have a family of my own, my focus remains on the mish mesh, the mixed, the combining of unusual pairs, contrast of color, masculine and feminine, things that do not "normally go together" is what my creativity seems to thrive on.
I use many different mediums, such as clay, acrylics, oils, watercolors, sand, yarn,fabrics, items found in nature and generally anything I can get my hands on that feels right. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
anything and everything gives me an inspired idea of some sort
