Funny thing, I stopped in Russia on my way from Singapore to Moldova. But I couldn’t fly further because Russian-Ukrainian conflict blowed up and flights to Moldova were suspended. So… this is how I settled down in Moscow!
2022 – Today, Moscow…
To be honest, despite the world is shattering progressively, I am quite thrilled and inspired to start a new chapter. But since fulfilling new goals may take a few years, I am reopening for freelance projects (worldwide) and quirky opportunities~
Fashion / Jewellery collection developing.
Product photography and retouch.
Overall, art project manager.
2018 – 2021, Singapore.
In 2018 I moved to Singapore with a great plan to stay there forever. I got rid of all the stuff I had, took some art supplies and my 2 years young cat 🙂 It was the most difficult adventure among all I had…
Graduated from Jewellery Design & Management International School (JDMIS, Singapore) with three diplomas: Fine Jewellery Design, Precious Metal Arts, Jewellery Arts.

I had a plan to move forward and got extra education in nail-art, but for a shameful reason, in 2017 I had to leave Russia and my plans to settle in Saint Petersburg for a beautician career were destroyed. I was depressed and confused, so, I enrolled to a local dancing school to stay sane after another pack of plans got shattered in dust~ But still, I passed some local courses of nail-art and kept practicing.
Accomplished education in Universal Express Pattern-Drafting Methods (УНИМЕКС), tailoring.
Participated in 3 latin dancing shows.

In 2014 I moved to Moscow, but got completely disappointed with school and went for a photo-trip to Iceland instead of the diploma project. My mom didn’t allow me to stay and work in Moscow, so, later in 2015, I moved to Saint Petersburg to live at my aunt’s and became a beautician.
Quit Foundation course at «British High School of Art & Design» (BHSAD, Moscow), cause the course was the greatest mistake…

2012 – 2013, Moldova.
After a long time spent far from society, I decided to stop freelancing and have some fun… I joined Japanese classes and started exploring new medias of art (video and photo), so, I took hairstyling as an additional expertise to work with models. Actually, there was a plan to become a hairstylist ‘cause my absolutely genius hair-master liked my skill, but I got tired of his attitude and left, later in 2014.

Visited more then 20 countries.
2004 – 2012, Moldova.
In 2004 I suddenly realised that instead of staring at rare beautiful pictures (we had no Pinterest or Instagram that time!) in the magazine, I can learn and draw same beautiful pictures! That is how my journey as a CG Artist started…

I sincerely love studies and haven’t mentioned a lot of stuff I learnt, but still going to share some artworks in 3D or body-art, and etc. I also hope to focus more on my gallery and some extra projects, but really… as soon as I decide to stop studies, I find myself buying an online course or researching on some crafts at YouTube xD So… cross your fingers!
