IMG_9057I’m a Ukrainian-born immigrant, who made NH into my forever home. I’m a photographer, a gardener, a birdwatcher, a storyteller – a New Hampshire Artist, with a studio in Bedford, NH. I work primarily with acrylic, ink & watercolor. My inspiration comes from wildlife, but I also appreciate local landscapes and often paint en plein air. With acrylics, I rely on impressionism and vivid colors to show off the natural beauty of our local wildlife, and often work from the photographs I take myself. With ink and watercolor, I often resort to quick, loose sketches. And even though I have only begun to pursue my career as an artist two years ago, I already sold close to 100 pieces of artwork, participated in numerous exhibits, organized a fundraiser art show to benefit Live and Let Live Farm Rescue in Chichester, held an art retreat at Mount Washington Resort at Bretton Woods, NH, and even have a scheduled public art installation (Bedford Bulldogs) in front of our town Public Library in Bedford, NH (August, 2017.)

    Hey, Lyuda!

    Fabulous website! Love your work! Will be seeing you in a couple of weeks for our flower-painting session . . . really looking forward to it.

    I have been toying with taking watercolor lessons for some time. I have sketched off and on for years, but I’d like to try watercolor. Reading here that you offer lessons . . . Hmmm. Would love to chat with you about it.
