BIO:
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.
Artist Statement:
My artworks reflect the social, political, and natural processes that are developing in the contemporary world through the prism of a woman’s mind. My paintings refer to complex issues with simple imagery that could be understood by everybody. I am often using personal memories as the entries point into my narratives. While looking deep inside for personal thoughts and feelings, I am reaching out to share with my audience to find common ground with my viewer for mutual understanding and connection. My art becomes an open space for mind-shifting reflections while providing emotional comfort through distant togetherness.
