I was born in 1938 in a small village, in Russia. My childhood was spent during and after the WWII. It was pretty much a life of deprivation, where even simple everyday things were scarce. I as soon as I was introduced to arts, I became drawn to the beautiful world it opened to me. When I was 19, my family moved to Uzbekistan where lived most of my life.

In 1962, I started studying painting and art education at Republican Art School, Tashkent, Uzbekistan. After graduation, I had to complete a two-year contract teaching art in a public school. I also worked in Tashkent theaters, thought in a children art studio, and gave private art lessons.

I have always continued fine art painting. Working mostly in oil and watercolor, I focused on still life.

My paintings have been presented in a number art exhibitions in Tashkent, Uzbekistan.

In 2008 I moved to USA and currently live in Charlotte, North Carolina.
