I was born in the Ukraine in 1939 and shortly after when I was seven years old my family moved to Poland. I received my education in Poland and was always interested in the art of painting Unfortunately, at this time, I did not have the means to pursue my interest in Art. I moved to Italy and this is where I started painting. There was so much beautiful scenery and places that it touched my heart. Upon arriving in Canada in 1993 I continued my hobby and my passion for painting. Today I continue to pursue my hobby and love of paintng.
