I live and work in Crimea.
I was born in a small Carpatian village Stanivci in the Western Ukraine in 1948.
After attending an arts college in Chernivtsy I have accomplished a classical education in art in the Moscow High School of Applied Arts in the class of Peoples Artist of USSR, Professor A.S.Aizenman. At this period I was strongly influenced by Anatoly Zverev (1931-1986), a member of the non-conformist movement and a founder of Russian Expressionism, who was affiliated with the School.
I moved to Crimea after the split of the USSR in 1991 and since then has my home and workshop in the town of Feodosia.
I am a Member of the Union of Artists of the Russian Federation (since 1996)
I have had many personal exhibitions in Feodosia, Simferopol, Chernovici, Kyev and Moscow.
