I was born in 1962 Asipovichi, Belarus . Following my passion, I attended and graduated from Belarusian State Academy of the Arts in 1985. Upon graduation I began a career in the illustration and graphic design field, painting in my spare time. After several very successful solo shows, I started to devote my attention to my art in the early 90`s. Shortly after making this career change, accompanied by my family I moved to Toronto Canada.
