Natalia draws and paints as long as she remember herself. As a child she studied for 4 years at Russian art school and was the youngest graduate at the age of twelve. Natalia has a Specialist degree in Teaching (AGPU, Armavir State Pedagogical University), she studied classical realism at the Angel Academy of Florence and at the workshops of well known American and European artists such as Cesar Santos, Louis Carr, Michael Klein, Michelle Dunaway etc.
Natalia prioritizes drawing and never uses any image transferring techniques in her work.
She works in different media (pencils, charcoal, watercolor, acrylics, oils etc) but her main focus is always portraiture.
