I am 43 years old. I was born and raised in Ukraine, in the city Mariupol. I have a financial education which has helped me to provide for myself and my family.
However, painting has been my hobby for the past few years, which I pursued in my spare time which was very limited. As time passed, I became more and more interested in painting, learning about different artists and their styles.
In 2022, a war broke out in Ukraine, and my house in Mariupol was completely destroyed. Along with it, all of my old works were destroyed, which were very dear to me. My family and I decided to move to Switzerland to find refuge and start a new life. Here, I started from scratch and devoted much more time to my hobby.
