Oil paintings by Evgeniya Zragevskaya
People do not become artists, they are born that way. If you did not reveal this talent when still a child, the destiny would channel you towards creativity in the right moment. I studied music and practiced medicine but my hobbies have always stayed creative. Graphic drawings, paintings, decorations with beads, interior design, ladies’ hair dyeing and haircuts – I’ve been into all these since my very childhood. Still, my creative search finally brought me to the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels. Upon graduation, I took lessons from Marina Sokolova, both an excellent artist and a patient teacher. With her personal supervision I have finally shaped as an oil painter. I am especially entranced by painting landscapes, portraits and intriguing scenes of life. I draw the subjects from the nature and the ever-fascinating world. My workshop is located near the coastline of Lake Baikal in Siberia.
