I find an inspiration in nature, with its elusive beauty being an endless source of excitement for me.

Julia's Bio

"I am a Russian-born impressionist oil and pastel painter, working plein air and doing primarily landscapes of Virginia and outdoor floral still life. In oils I work alla prima, broadly using a broken-color technique with brushes and a palette knife. In pastels I tend to break colors too applying dabs and strokes of colors with pastel sticks. My goal is to study color and light in a landscape or outdoor still life. I find an inspiration in nature, with its elusive beauty being an endless source of excitement for me.  My bold and spontaneous use of colors combined with an impasto technique reveals my passionate perception of landscapes and allows me to create a rich and complex color surface, which results in a subtle color harmony and color balance."

Julia lives and works in Crozet Virginia. Since coming to the United States she has won numerous awards for both her pastels and oil. You'll find her work in the best juried art shows all over the country, and she has won several "first place."
