▶ Mariia Raskin is an abstract award-winning artist born in 1979 in Kazakhstan and currently Turkey-based.

Graduated with honors from Moscow Textile University in 2001 with a degree in fashion design, she had been changing many art-related professions: body- art master, make-up artist, shop window designer, graphic designer, fashion and book illustrator.

She uses wide volumetric palette knife strokes with careful subtle details drawing to make viewers feel the contrasting combination of energy and serenity in her artworks.

I see my mission as an artist in transferring my inspiration from contemplating the beauty of nature onto canvas. And share this inspiration and positive energy with people who view these pictures at home every day!

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

The freedom and spontaneity guide me in my art painting process. I have no clear plan or sketch to strive for. I don't really know what exactly the finished artwork will look like.
