I was born in Russia. I traveled the world. I find beauty everywhere I look. I'm a mother, a friend, and an artist. I save myself a dream world of literature. I found my paradise in South Florida. Sometimes my imagination goes beyond. I get inspired by all kinds of things: music, flowers, and people. I consider myself blessed to have a career that doesn’t feel like “work.” I am much more pleasant after my morning coffee. Peonies are my favorite flowers. I always see the glass half full. I love the sound of the ocean and my kid's laughter. I love my life.
