I am an artist, born in Ukraine. I am fascinated by the manifestation of the female body in the mind. In society today, I perceive that many people hold an internal struggle between our individuality and conforming to prescribed social norms. Historically, women have had to conform to societal notions of beauty and have adjusted their behaviour accordingly.

In my practice, I am inspired by muses around the world; women who transcend these prescribed behaviours to be confident in their own skin, confident in their message, and confident in the work they create, all while striving to embrace the human feeling of vulnerability. The women that I portray do not see social boundaries and do not fear the consequences of their expressions. Communicating through brushstrokes and composition is therefore a very important part of the process as I first need to be able to have honest conversation with myself.

Time is an enemy of a beauty but a friend of ugliness.
