Maria Shedrina - Modern Artist
Beauty is saving the World - i am sure!
My first word was "brush" instead of "mama", my father is an artist - so i had to become an artist! I was born in 1975 on the Black Sea (Novorossiysk).
As an emotional person, I need to express feelings in my art - so I chose Expressionism. As a literature lover i also use a Symbolism style in my artworks. I often use ink because of Japanese influence.
I also love experimenting, it's my way of self-development which results in some unusual technics I use. So that's why all my artworks have such a rich textures. As a texture fan, every artwork is an invention, i make some new graphic experiments and even I don't know what the result will be. So my artworks cannot be copied and repeated even by me.
Here you can have a look on my art process.
I am a professional artist (graduated from an Art University in 1997)
I had a break for almost 15 years in my artist career - i was busy with my business and worked as a graphic designer. Now I am full-time artist and illustrator and plan to no longer stop in my work
As true romantic, I am always seeking beauty, and yes, I am sure - beauty is saving the World!
My artworks are in private art collections in Switzerland, Germany, USA, France, Israel, Georgia and Russia.
In 2020 i sold 126 artworks and took part in 2 large exhibitions (there was a big competition for participation in these exhibitions, my artworks were selected).
For some sold artworks i can make an art print.
