TemnaIryna. Ukraine. I live in Chernigov - an ancient city of legends and architecture from the times of Kievan Rus, located on the banks of the Desna river. I got carried away with easel painting when I realized that I needed a new breath of fresh air. Now I want painting to become a matter of my life and cannot imagine my life without creation. Before that, I worked in the field of medicine for a long time. I have two higher educations, not related to the visual arts. Only in November 2019, my creative path began with the study of techniques and techniques of oil painting.During this period of time I have written more than 60 art works. Nature is the main source of inspiration, which helps to develop in various genre directions: landscapes, portraits, still lifes. Participant of the plein air with Vitaly Petrovsky - the organizer of the Art Studio of the Globus gallery, as well as the Sofievsky plein air - 2020 - the organizer of Zaborovsky Gate.

Winner of the Grand Prix in the "Fine Arts" nomination in the senior age category of the international multi-genre festival ZIRKA.Bulgaria 2020. A special place in my work is occupied by the work on the restoration of the icons of the facade walls of the Holy Resurrection Cathedral in Chernihiv.
