Like butterfly, I hit the glass
cannot get out of this ploy
My wings have been broken
As if somebody played with toys
There’s no healing by time
Every year just more pain brings!
Wind of the unfulfilled life
Years the soul from hinges
Lord above, help me survive
Give me a blessing of love!

I was born in Sochi, I am 49 years old. I have 1 disability group, I have been ill with cerebral palsy since childhood, I can hardly walk on crutches. I underwent 9 operations, 7 of which were unsuccessful.
In 1991 I graduated from the Cultural and Educational school, library studies major. In 2002, I graduated from the College of Law with a degree in social protection.
For 15 years, I worked in the rehabilitation center for children with disabilities and in public organization for wheelchair users “Renaissance”. In 1997, I was awarded the personal award of the head of the Krasnodar Territory N. I. Kondratenko in adolescents and people with disabilities for stamina and love of life, willpower and optimism with a Diploma from the Sochi City Administration for the will to live and active life position.
Now I am engaged in creative work, in 2012 I got started with the creation of photo clips, I independently mastered the programs “Pro show” and “Photoshop”. My photo clip took 1st place in the competition, which was conducted by Lolita and Alla Pugacheva. Creatively collaborated with musician, singer and composer Gennady Bogdanov.
In 2016 I took a great interest in the artistic processing of photography. I watched a few lessons, and then began to come up with my own unusual solutions. I work in the field of artistic photo processing. I use the author’s method: applying textures to textures and working with brushes. I pay special attention to perspective, depth of the picture, as well as color palette. Apparently, the fact that I do not have the opportunity to often leave the house, much less travel, affects it. My unfulfilled travel dream comes true partially when I work on landscapes. In my mind, I imagine myself in another country and it gives me great pleasure. I love bright colors, impressionism, sometimes turning into expressionism, it gives me vitality. My favorite artists are Claude Monet, Mikhail Vrubel, Auguste Renoir, Kuindzhi and many others.
An exhibition of my works was held from 7 to 10 November 2018 in Barcelona (Spain) with the assistance of the DAR Charitable Association.
In December 2019, an exhibition of my works “Dreams of Wanderings” was held in Sochi.
Now I live with my parents, my mother is 79 years old, my father is 81 years old, there are many problems, but God is with me, I trust in him!
