"I was born on January 28, 1958, in the small Belarusian town of Orsha, which is situated on the banks of the Dnieper River, nestled among scenic forests. As far back as I can recall, I was always drawing pictures and from my early childhood I knew that I would be an artist. While in school I attended studio art classes, happily learning the rudiments of classical drawing and painting. Upon graduation, I enrolled in Vitebsk Pedagogical Institute's Department of Graphic Art. Those were the most beautiful years of engaging studies, student friendships, and new creative explorations. There I learned decorative applied arts (tapestry, embroidery) and sculpture as well as graphic art. Following that, I began working with various materials and in various fields of art, but over time painting became the most important and major foundation of my creative output. I have been a member of the Designers' Union of Belarus since 2003 participating in numerous group and one-woman art shows, both at home and abroad. My works can be found in the collections of the National Museum of History and Culture of Belarus in Minsk, the National Museum-Archive of History and Culture in Polotsk, and the Town Museum of Payerne, Switzerland, as well as in private collections in Belarus, Russia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Spain, France, Switzerland, and the United States."
