This is my impression of New York City. I lived there for many years and feel an incredible connection to the city. New York City can be many things: menacing and vibrant, exciting and lonely, fascinating and cold... One may feel different emotions about the city at any given moment... This is my take on the turbulence and happiness of the city, the intimate connection that I have with the city, and a feeling of desperation that could be present once you look at the apartment tenements of Brooklyn, for instance.
I used a palette knife to really get my feelings onto the canvas.

I am a professional fine artist and an art teacher. I grew up in the cold, snowy climate of the city of Leningrad in the former Soviet Union. Therefore, I absolutely love snow and winter. My heart elates when it snows. I lived in Boston for many years and was in heaven in the winter.
I started painting when I was eight years old. A dear friend who was also my neighbor, at the time was attending an art college and was willing to teach me. We spent hours painting flowers and other props that he set up for me. He was eight years older than me, so I listened attentively. My parents supported my creativity and eventually, I entered an elite art High School within the Art Academy of Leningrad. My art education continued when we immigrated to the States 30 years ago. Although my undergrad was in illustration, I was always an oil painter and never gave up my love. I matured over the years and so did my art.
