My Bio
I just turned 23, I'm a student in OCADU and I have been painting for as long as I remember. I came to Canada when I was 12 from Russia and as I get older I start to miss or actually value these nostalgic memories of mine that I include in my paintings of cold Russia.

Flat square brushes was my fav back in the time but no longer. *Pallet- I buy a painting frame with glass for $8 then I put a white paper under the glass and use that to mix my paints. I used
