Bio I am a Russian-Dutch artist who has moved around some in my life. And every country where I have lived has managed to inspire me in its own way – and has left enduring influences in my work. I was born in Russia and studied art in Belgium. After living and working in the Netherlands and the United States, my home is now in the beautiful province of Abruzzo in Italy. So, in my recent work you may well see reflections of Abruzzo. The colours of the soil, sea and sky. The hilltop villages which suddenly appear as
round a bend in the road. An unhurried espresso on a terrace while contemplating snow-topped mountains.
