First Place

My journey into the world of art began with meeting my teacher Maley Alexander, a world-famous Belarusian artist. He is known as a follower of Malevich. And this is not surprising, because we are from the city of artists - Vitebsk, where Malevich, Chagall and many other creators of avant-garde art lived and worked. I studied with him individually in his workshop, just like the old masters studied for centuries. Painting and drawing is my main activity.

Portrait and landscape are my biggest passion. Expressionism is the style that speaks to me the most.

‘Reservoir’ was inspired by a fall walk through a county park. The colors of the leaves were richer from a recent rain and rain drops reflecting nature are amazingly colorful and surprisingly abstract amidst the surrounding organic realism. I search for unique beauty in nature and share those discoveries through my colored pencil natural still life artworks and that day was a good one.

I love walking through the woods searching for a glimpse of nature consisting of a little something extra, what I call ‘a purple leaf’ or inspiration, for my natural still life colored pencil artworks. I am fascinated by natural objects composed by nature, time and conditions that reveal this uniquely beautiful but seldom seen natural world. The aesthetic beauty of leaves, diverse in types, shapes and colors, combined with elements of earth, water and stone, are my purple leaf and the reason I look forward to discoveries found in each step and with every new step forward. Frank Lloyd Wright said it best: “Study nature, love nature, stay close to nature. It will never fail you.”

While the foliage of woodland trees keeps me returning to the natural world, it’s the beautiful organic lines, the rich earth colors, the dramatic lighting, and the interesting textures that keep me there. I love to hear the sound of leaves rustling in the wind, the smell of moist soil, and the feeling of tranquility from walking through the woods. Nature does not stand still but I capture special moments of beauty, of absolute wonder, and serenity of nature in my still life artworks.
