I’m an Edinburgh-based printmaker, working primarily in linocut. I grew up in Moscow and moved to Scotland nearly 20 years ago to complete my Masters degree and now call it home. I like creating colourful linocuts, using both reduction and multiple-plate techniques.
An idea for a new linocut often comes from seeing beautiful colours and shapes around me, in everyday life. Recently, I’ve been finding myself increasingly drawn to nature and the way it changes from season to season. I also find inspiration in my favourite books, music and in history.
