I am a professional artist and art educator. The creation and refinement of my unique style is a craft I’ve spent decades developing and perfecting with whimsical humour, textural sensitivity and vibrant sense of colour. Although I’m currently live in Sydney, Australia, I was born and raised in Omsk, Russia. As a result of this mixed culture, I wish to blend my eclectic background of European art, experiences, and classics with the fresh Australian colours of life and nature that I’ve discovered.

I’m most passionate about painting and drawing which I’ve been practicing since childhood. I’ve always loved the experience of losing myself in thoughts and diving into the world of art and imagination. This creative introspection allows me to produce art that is not only beautiful, but which is also one-of-a-kind. I’ve often been told that this uncanny ability to illustrate the exceptional beauty of everyday life is what makes my artwork lovable.

Throughout my career, I’ve accumulated a vast repertoire of artistic techniques that have allowed me to better illustrate my intentions as an artist. I wish to create unforgettable works and spread a deep emotional connection between objects and human beings whenever I begin a new piece. As a result, most of my work conveys the synthesis between Eastern and Western art, the figurative and the abstract, and the real and imaginary.

I’m highly educated and an experienced artist as well as an accomplished lecturer specializing in painting, graphics, and art history. I graduated with a Master of Fine Arts in Painting at Omsk State University, with First Class Honours. About a year later, I began my 14 year career as a Fine Arts lecturer at the same university. During that time, from 1992 -1994, I took an Advanced Master Course in Fine Arts at the Repin State Academic Institute for Painting, Sculpture and Architecture in St. Petersburg, Russia as well as a Professional Fine Arts Master Class at V.I. Surikov State Academic Art Institute in Moscow, Russia.

I’ve been involved in a number of professional organizations throughout my career such as the Russian Association of Painters & Sculptors and the Russian Academy of the Arts. I have been featured in prominent art galleries and exhibitions in Russia, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Australia. I was featured artist on Colour in Your Life TV show in Australia Channel 74 and Foxtel channel 183 Aurora, New Zealand and this year USA. To discover my surreal symbolism, imaginative and whimsical art in detail:

I had very successful exhibitions at Art Revolution Taipei 2012, 2014 and 2015 (, Taiwan (A.R.T.). I was featured in A.R.T. publication “Meeting the Masters V.S. The Greats Meet the Greats” and my paintings were featured in many Taiwanese publications.

I also run “Kids Love Art”, Yelena Dyumin’ School of Fine Arts in Bondi and Artarmon/Chatswood (NSW), specializing in imparting a grasp of depth, tone and awareness of light in subjects to my students.
I believe that my constant exposure to new ideas and types of art is what hasallowed me to develop into the artist I am today.

I am a passionate artist and my ultimate aim is to focus on the quality of my work rather that the quantity of it and impart a small piece of myself as an artist into each and every one of my creations.
