Hello! My name is Maria, and I'm happy to meet you!
I dreamed to became an artist during all my childhood, I was studing at the art school and was drawing all my free time as well. But after it, I quit drawing for a years... I got two diplomas of higher education and quite good work expirience, but that wasn't about art even approximately. Thou it was rather interesting life with a lot of events I felt myself empty during all that years. And one day I remembered my childhood dream... So, here I am ,happy artist! And I want to share my endless happyness with you!
ABOUT MY ART
My art now is mostly portraits - humans' and pets'. I draw from photos, but I don't need the best quality photos to make a portrait. Sometimes pictire you made against all the rules of photography and on the old camera can help me to create an interesting portrait. I try to use my imagination and feelings, try to get "in the photo" to make a wonderful story in a portrait.
I draw with soft pastels on a special pastel paper. To save the wonderful colors and structure that pastel gives I send all my art works framed and underglassed. That way softpastel works can be even more durable than oil paintings, they will give your pleasure for a years and years!
Feel free to contact me! I speak English and Russian.I'll be ha ppy to answer any question!
