Katya is a self taught artist who has been painting since early childhood. She cannot imagine a single day without the colors, brushes and canvases and puts all her effort and inspiration into her vibrant art. Being a free thinker and experimenting with new techniques and gel mediums she creatively applies the paint to the canvas using her imagination only as a way of expressing her ever changing mood. She is not afraid of bright colors or variable textures. Painting comes naturally to Katya who is continually seeking out new ways to refine the depth and energy of her art.
Katya was born in St. Petersburg, Russia and lived in Moscow until she moved to the United States with her family when she was 17 years old. She holds a masters degree in educational psychology and statistics. Katya is married with three children and currently resides in Syracuse, New York. When she is not with her family she spends every free moment painting.
Katya’s paintings have been featured in several exhibitions since 2003 and are currently found in numerous private collections in the United States and around the world.
