Hungary

I was born in Russia and worked as structural steel engineer, like a hobby I decided to go to art school and it's changed my life. Now I'm full time professional botanical artist, living in Hungary. I like to grow and paint plants, botanical illustration it's a long process, almost photorealistic and with lots of details, it's some kind of meditation for me and makes me feel closer to nature.

In botanical art I admire beauty of the artistic image of the plant, incredibly fine work and details. I like to depict spectacular lush plants, full of life, with their expressive advantages and disadvantages. In the composition I try to keep the most natural position of the plant in nature.
I work on my "Grow and draw" project, I grow plants at home and in the garden and create images of different stages of growth. I think, growing plant from small seed helps to understand the object better.
