I graduated from the Institute of Architecture and a school of music (violin). As a child, I dreamed of becoming a writer and started with drawing illustrations for my own “collections of works” yet to be written. After that I came to work with some written by others, and several books with my illustrations were published. One of them was awarded a diploma for design at a contest held among publishing houses. The book had 48 pictures. I worked as an architect and at the same time illustrated magazines and a column by the sex columnist Olga Sergiyenko in the Bolshoi Gorod weekly. Participated in collective and personal exhibitions of various styles, most of which were secret.
