Hi, I am Anastasia
Anastasia was born in Saint Petersburg, Russia, from a very artistic family. Her mother is a writer and her father is a philosopher. Very early in her childhood, her father noticed her talent for art and sent her to an art school for young children. Later she attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg. She graduated in 2004 with the masterʼs degree of Fine Arts.
Currently Anastasia lives and works in Vancouver, BC. She is continuously inspired by the beauty of its nature and scenery. Her medium of choice is oil and acrylic on canvas, which is an ideal match to her symbolic style
that bridges the gap between classical school painting and decorative art. Her paintings often contain figurative elements that transcend the reality of everyday life.
Anastasia has practiced her art in several geographical locations.
During the years she spent in France and in New Mexico USA, she participated in a number of shows and was honored with several awards. In 2005 she received the Jury’s choice award and southwestern prize from the Roswell Fine Arts League and New Mexico Art Society. Her artwork has been shown in the Greater Vancouver area since she moved
here in March 2006. Anastasia’s artwork have been collected worldwide.
Active Member of Federation of Canadian Artists since 2012.
25 years of experience in oil painting.
6 years of experience in teaching art.
Master’s degree in Arts, with a specialization in oil painting.
