Several Words About Me

I am Polina. I have been born in Russia. My Fathers side of the family have always been artistic. My Grandmother was a professional artist and my Uncle was an Art Dealer. I started drawing at an early age.

I studied Art at the College of Fine Arts in Kaluga region, subrbs of Moscow, obtaining a General Art and Design degree. When relocated to London, UK, I took art classes and now I have been selling pictures as a professional for several years.

My preferred medium are gouache and watercolours. Acrylics are great for their quick drying properties and for painting colours over large areas. Oils have a wonderful depth to their colours and they are great for blending.

Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” ― Pablo Picasso
