  1. Exhibit

    I see beauty in the mundane, the random and the discarded. I see in terms of texture, pattern, shadows, light reflections, words, symbolism and unnoticed detail.  I love the elegance of the human curve, the sad grace of abandoned places. colors. This is an Introspection of my life, my world.  Art is spiritual to me and I work in many different media to express what I feel  and how I see the world.

    Russian-Canadian visual artist and creative writer, Tatiana has been making art and writing as far back as she can remember. Having tried it all, her favorite visual techniques remain collage, drawing and photography.
