Some history

I was born in a small, industrial town in Russia. While growing up I had always dreamed, and strived, for greater opportunities. Taking art and piano classes from a young age instilled a deep appreciation for creative endeavors — one that has only grown since (just like my mom schemed!). These interests which have turned into passions have allowed for me to try out my entrepreneurial spirit selling original paintings internationally, starting in high school, and again, later on here in the U.S..

After H.S. graduation, being a hardcore fan of American tv shows, I felt compelled to study languages and translation in college but soon realized I couldn’t shake off that strong creative pull. After briefly selling more of my artwork, I kept searching and finally came across Product Design, which allows me to express both sides of my personality: a nerdy & systematic, problem-solving thinker — on the one hand, and an inventive what-if-type-of-artist on the other! And there you go, here I am :)
