I was born in Russia and have lived in the United States for the last 15 years. My interest in art began as a child, and oil painting became my focus about 20 years ago. I am a self-taught painter who, having retired from professional body building, has had more time to devote to painting.VIEW ARTIST’S WORK

ART STUDENT TESTIMONIAL
“Continue what you are doing! Teaching us painting techniques—like how to use the brushes and achieve special effects—is the value-added benefit from attending a Main Avenue Galleria Sips & Serendipity event. It is clear that Norma cares greatly about teaching and making her painting guests feel they’ve learned something.”
