"I was born March 16, 1984, in the city of Dushanbe ( Tajikistan). In 1991 together with my mother and older brother, I moved to Moscow, settling in Korolev, in the Moscow region. I began to draw portraits of people at age twelve with ballpoint pen. I studied at the Theatre School ( MKhaT), yet did not complete my studies due to the illness of my mother. All this time I continued to draw and paint with acrylic and gouache.
In 2006 my mother died. My brother and I remained together. I worked at many jobs. I worked my socks off as a waitress, receptionist at a beauty salon, flower girl, and a toy seller in the circus. I worked for some time in the theater in the city Korolev, putting on two small performances. I always loved the circus, a love passed on to me by my mother.
In 2015 I met with the artists Alexey Stepanov and Andrey Makarov and painted with them. We held several exhibitions in Moscow and St.Petersburg. In the spring of 2016 I traveled with the circus. In the autumn of 2016 I moved to St. Petersburg, where I live and work at present."
