I am a Ukrainian-born Canadian artist with BFA majoring in Paining and Drawing from Concordia University currently living and working in Montreal. While oil is my primary painting medium, my body of work includes watercolour and ink drawings and fibre art. I participated in numerous group exhibitions in Canada. In 2022 I was honoured to receive Research and Creation Grant from Canada Council for the Arts.
Je suis une artiste canadienne d'origine ukrainienne. Actuellement je vis et travaille dans mon studio à Montréal. Mes œuvres sont principalement des peintures à l’huile et des dessins à l'encre, mais je crée occasionnellement des pièces avec des techniques mixtes, des œuvres textiles et des vidéos.
My work reflects the social, political, and natural processes in our contemporary world captured through the prism of a woman’s mind. Through my paintings of seemingly ordinary, everyday objects, I wish to investigate deeper issues related to the place of woman in the society, communal urban living, consumerism, and sustainability. I often use personal memories as the entry point into my visual narratives. In this way, my work straddles the personal as well as the interpersonal, creating an open space that challenges and comforts the viewer through distant togetherness.
