I am an artist, born in Ukraine and based in Kyiv. 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 and looking at my own experience. It is powerful how 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 and characters that I paint do not see social boundaries and do not fear the consequences of their expressions. They simply exist  because they want to.  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.
