About

I am a professional artist in Oil Paintings, a member of the International Federation of Artists. I am also a writer, a member of the International Union of Writers, a member of the Club of Masters of Contemporary Prose "Litera K". 
I was born in the artists family in Penza City (Russia) in 1970. My great-grandfather was a Colonel and the inspector of the Don Army. My great-grandmother Zina was a Tolstoyan. She corresponded with Lev Tolstoy daughter - Tatiana Tolstoy.

1980-1984 - The Penza School of Arts.
1984-1988 - The Penza College of Fine Arts.

I was lucky enough. I met Valentin Massow in 1986. He became my teacher and 13 years later he became my husband. Valentin Massow is the artist of genius. My future of an artist has been realized thanks to his great interest to my talent.

Art has always been my passion. I knew from a very early age that art was going to be the most important in my life.
My way to Art has begun in Watercolor Painting. Watercolor Painting has given me freedom and has helped me to realize myself as a creative person. Oil Painting has given me sensation of flight and omnipotence. I like Oil Painting. I love to work with people and nature. I want to show beauty of a human soul, of nature. I call my work "penetration to mystery".  My tenet of my work: You can never step into the same river twice. Every my new painting is as a new step in my creativity.

My art works are not symbols of modern banalities and facelessness. I am not a dilettante with a sole primitive purpose – to create a spot of color for the interior, without thoughts and feelings. I am Artist. Art is my life. I am in developmental stage all time, because perfection has no limit.

1995 - 2004 - I lived in Moscow.

Today I am a mature artist. I am free from unnecessary illusions and what everyone else thinks. I know what I want and I know what I do not want. I do have a choice and it is my one.
I know the price of creativity. I have the possibility to work how I understand it, without looking back at the art-business tendencies. I am not running in circles, chasing our tails coming back as we are because I know my way.
I never get depressed, because I believe in God. My life is in the hands of God, therefore I am quiet...
