Brief Biography


Born in Nefteyugansk, a small town in Siberia, I was introduced to drawing by my father, who carried on the tradition taught to him by his own father. After completing art school, I pursued further education at the Ural Architectural and Art Academy in Yekaterinburg, where I launched my artistic career in 2012. My travels around the world and family ties in Germany, Ukraine, and Norway have profoundly shaped my perception of the world, instilling a sense of pacifism and expanding my horizons. Currently, I collaborate with a global audience from Anapa, a southern city where I continue to develop my artistic practice.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.

Personal Statement 


Through parental experience, using psychoanalytic and social methods, the artist explores themes of human strength and weakness: sensuality, empotism, aggression, restraint and socially acceptable manifestations of these qualities. 

In her work she looks for the possible influence of a person on children and the world around. She is interested in the questions of whether it is possible to cultivate conventional “strong traits” in oneself as an adult, how different they are, and whether it is possible to cultivate them in one’s children. 

The artist, in search of her own language and the border between figurative painting and abstract brushwork, develops her technique with a palette knife while experimenting with others. She uses vivid and clear images and tries to convey her emotional attitude and the emotional state of the subject of the image through impulsive mosaic strokes and a color palette.
