Biography

I was born, raised and educated in Komi republic, Russia. I constantly take part in exhibitions in Russia. In 2009 I used to work in the creative team of the experimental factory stoneware “Vorontsovo” in Moscow, and since 2010 took part in the nationwide Russian exhibitions in Moscow and other local as well as international projects. My works are in the collection of the National Gallery of Komi, Komi National Museum, Finno-Ugric Cultural Center of the Russian Federation.
