Biography: I 've been trained and worked as an architect and artist in Moscow, Russia. Since 1987, I have been living in San Francisco. I have been a finalist in many juried exhibitions, juried, among others, by Phil Linhares, Chief Curator of Art, The Oakland Museum of California, and Kenneth Baker, Art Critic for the San Francisco Chronicle. I have had three solo exhibitions and have been featured in art and photography journals. I have also been fortunate to have several of my works selected by the Lafayette Public Library as a part of the City of Lafayette Permanent Collection.
