I started to paint almost by accident. To save expenses, I was making frames for my artist wife, Ekaterina, and after 3 months of making I thought that I may as well do a painting to put in one of my frames. So at the end of 2007 I produced 2 miniature oils and entered them in the Canberra Show, 2008, where I was awarded Highly Commended followed by a Second Prize in 2009.
My usual style is anything from Representational to Abstract.
Two day pastels tuition with Grace Paleg at Bateman’s Bay; a week-long life model workshop with Pauline Adair at the Canberra Art Society’s Summer School; life model workshop with Chan Dissenyake.

Pauline Adair inspired me to run 3 life model workshops for beginners and intermediates which is, I believe, excellent training for me because to teach is to learn.
