I live to create...
I dedicated my life to creation, since my early childhood years. I started as an artist, drawing and painting every single day. Then I got into film photography and this is when photography became a big deal for me. I was so enticed by the variety of colours, tones and shades outside of the paper and easel. I wanted to experience the digital way of "painting", so, yes, I started focusing on colours while editing.
And this is the moment, when it became a form of art for me! I stopped painting and drawing at that time and put all my creative energy into photography. (I am an artist so colours have an irreplaceable part in my life as well as the process of creation. It can't be vanished, so it has just found another channel to be fulfilled.)
I moved to another country (from Russia to UAE) and was totally surprised by a variety of scenery and architecture that found its way to my work.
