My name is Tanya, and is soon to be 59 years of age.

I was born and raised in the Ukraine. Almost all of my life I lived in the city, There is a very old and beautiful city with a rich cultural life of the city.

When I was a kid, I liked to draw. The black-and-white paintings, which were my favorites. I love the shadows and the things that you can see with the two colors. However, I had a little bit of a problem – it was my little sister. I don't know if I can call him ”little” – of course, we are twins, not just the twins – but those of identical twins. We were always together, we're two sides of the same coin. When I was painting the tables, I tried to hide them so she wouldn't ruin them. No, she's reefs don't break the tables , and she colored them in! She thought of the colors. All of my work was that, sooner or later, are highlighted. It's not such a bad thing, but then I hated it. I screamed, I cried, we fought. At the end, I gave up. When I was about 12 I decided to stop painting a picture...

However, the feelings you are experiencing have to get out of, in any way, they need to get in shape. Eventually, I found a way to show my feelings and emotions. In this way, the fit for both me and my sister we both loved the flowers... now, the garden is both her and my passion.

Time went on...it was 20 years ago, I moved to Sweden, to a small town in the province of Dalarna. It is a beautiful nature with woods, lakes and rocks, it gave me a chance to express their feelings with flowers, many flowers, a sea of flowers. However, there was a lack of something. At one point, came the insidious, step-by-step, until I realized that I need to start painting again. In september of 2019, I bought my first canvas, acrylic paints and brushes. I started to try it out,step by step, until I was able to show some of my feelings and emotions on the canvas.

There is a lot I have to learn about the different techniques and colours, but I do know that what I paint is true – that is my feeling. My paintings are reflections of my feelings and emotions. I would like to share my feelings with you.
