I was born on 16.09.1974 in Kiviõli, Estonia. I studied at Tallinn University, faculty of art. Now I work as an art teacher in Kohtla-Jarve art school and in Kohtla Jarve day care facility for people with disabilities. I am also the head of virtual department of White hall of the oil shale muuseum. I got “Teacher of the year” and “Favorite teacher of the year” awards. I am a member of Kohtla-Jarve artists union since 2009 and a member of Russian artists in Estonia since 2012. From 2008 to 2020 I participated in more than 70 exhibitions, 10 of which were personal. My paintings are now in collections of Pushkin Museum-reserve and private collections in Finland, Russia, United States of America, Germany and Estonia.
