I was born in Moscow, had a scientific career in the Russian Academy of Sciences, in Europe and then in the UK. It was great to discover the secrets of nature, not easy but very inspiring! Apart from my interest in science as long as I can remember I have been interested in arts. Being a scientist requires imagination and creativity, which helps to get a step into world of art.
I am greatly inspired by the new opportunities brought into visual arts by digital media. In particularly what works for me is a possibility of combining digital painting and photography. In combination with fine art archival Geclee printing it gives a new approach to the world of visual arts, produces a new art media. Art creating process for me is mindfulness, I hope it comes across in my pictures. My pictures and picture portfolios have been published in several books and magazines.
