Born in 1973 in the city of Tchaikovsky, Perm Region. In the 1990s she worked in the workshop of folk crafts, specializing in artistic painting. In 2004 she moved to Moscow. She received a degree in economics here, but wanted to express herself in another field. She sought to be creative since childhood, but did not have the opportunity to study in this field. She started painting seriously only in 2015. She received an additional professional education at the Surikov Art Academy under the painting program (she defended her diploma in 2017).
I am grateful to my husband, who supported me in the learning process, and also helps me in everything now. And I am very grateful for the life that gave me the opportunity to do what I like.
Life, the world is constantly changing, but in this variability there are eternal meanings. I always wanted to express this feeling of eternity in everyday life. Painting is one of the wonderful possibilities of the spiritual mastery of the world.

My name is Nina Dobrovolska (art pseudonym from fr. Nina DoShé)
I was born in a beautiful country, Ukraine, and grew up being surrounded by the Mother Nature’s splendor in its local flavor: endless valleys, mighty rivers and, barely touched in their primordial mysticism, forests.
While the vicinity of nature was awakening and sharpening my artistic senses, pulling some hidden strings in my heart, the dear family gave me a chance not only to contemplate and feel the innate beauty of the world, but to satisfy the growing needs of what has ultimately become a life-lasting pursuit of continuous self-perfection.
This path has led me to a multi-dimensional inquiry. Currently, I have three master’s degrees in quite dissimilar spheres: Chemistry and Biology from the National University of life and environmental sciences of Ukraine in Kyiv, Economics from Kyiv National Economic University and Graphical from Estonian Academy of Arts. Even though it has not been an easy ride, the
accumulated knowledge in these areas has bestowed me with an ability to observe and evaluate art both very extensively and yet with completely fresh eyes. I am a big fan of graphics and painting, arts and crafts. I like to draw portraits and landscapes, and animals wrapped in kinky garments of my imagination.
His style is eclectic and genuine, and one possessing an uncanny knowledge and ability with creating and teaching art in a manner for all to enjoy.
Art is an intrinsic part of our very existence. As we create, we are being simultaneously created.
For 15 years Nina Dobrovolska has been combining a passion for painting with a career in the banks of Ukraine.
Her paintings are in private collections in Ukraine, UK (London), USA, Canada, Brazil, France, Estonia…
Life being a dream! / / Life as a Dream!
In 2019 I am turning 55 years old.
I was born in the big industrial city of Krivoy Rog, in Ukraine. My father, an outstanding teacher and artist Ivan Salko, helped me to take the first steps in art.
Its creativity is marked with a quiet reliance in elected path, maturity of art finds and solutions. The artist is excited with an idea of necessity to restore the harmony of the people and nature. Destroying the ecological medium, breaking off the connections with the Universe the man loses his spirituality too. The artist draws conscious analogies between the physical laws of space, biological laws of organic genesis and historical being of the man, as a uniform development stream of all alive on the ancient mythological law of the general animation of the nature.
The high spiritual tension in the artworks of Ivan Salko arises on an imperceptible edge between ordinary and unreal, probable and fancy. The natural volumes in his pictures are led to a formula, generalized and represented in a becoming, fluctuation and active interaction. In the artworks of the artist there is a deep knowledge of the world which goes with his poetic realization, the synthesis of emotional and rational adds to his thinking a completeness and versatility, the deep Love to a man, as a part of the nature, never betrays the craftsman. This Love he tried to pass me. Later on, I "With Honors" graduated from an art college in Ukraine and an external University in Moldova.
The study was combined with active creative and exhibition activities.
Have learnt art and scientific achievements of Mr.Yuri Salko, wanting to testify respect and official recognition of high endowments, which highlights he in terms of intellect and knowledge, he recognized The real member of the Academic Senate. The artist, having reached maturity in the noble art of classical painting, looked at him with fresh modern look. International Academy of Modern Art, recognized his work highest score and assigns it to Guild of the Academic Senate.
At the moment I am: Full member of the Academic Senate of the International Academy of Contemporary Art in Rome, Italy; Full member (academician) of the Petrovsky Academy of Sciences and Arts, Russia; Honorary Member of the National Academy of Fine Arts of Brazil. Author and organizer of the International Symposium of Artists "KAM ART"
Artistic credo: Dream - real, reality - is absurd, because unreal. Art - is a wonderful fusion of the real and the imaginary in their interpenetration.
My painting «The Ark»
Spirit homeless, sit on my shoulders. Looking for the universal harmony is unthinkable without the idea of wandering, pilgrimage, the idea of the eternal search for yourself in the labyrinths of the past, the present and the future. Who are we? Where have we come from and where are we going to? Who are you, a man in this huge universe frightening? Grain of sand? A little lonely point, thirsty for warmth and love? What are you looking for, contemplating the boundless Cosmos? Do you realize how fragile is a small ship, which fearlessly carries you on the waves of life, in the pursuit of truth, beauty and light? And why it is so important is this search to you? Who is around you? And who directs your Ark, who leads the search – Guardian angel or Navigator? Ode to Peace, family, light coming sounded in the web "Ark", written with great love and faith and hope. The artist comes in it from the Byzantine tradition, which is evident in the archaic golden background, in graphic highlight and color saturation.
The red color — the color of dizziness,
The color of the sun through your palm.
Bliss heart, tremors chase
In silent anticipation of achievements ...
