Welcome to the world of my Art

 Life Journey of my Artistic Soul

   My name is Margarita and I'm a New York based artist. I paint city- and landscapes in oil and acrylics, and I also take oil and charcoal portraiture lessons. Originally from Russia, I also lived in Germany, Singapore, UK and now in the US.

   I entered the world of art in 2012 by taking lessons with a Russian artist Olga Bliznetsova in her painting studio in Singapore, but back then I didn't take it seriously.

    Later in London, I took a couple of classes in different schools including

The Art Academy, Morley College and Central Saint Martins. 

   Now in New York, I decided to take my art skills to a professional level and gave up my career in marketing and BD to become a full-time artist.  In the meantime, I participated in a few exhibitions here in New York and sold some of my paintings to private collectors from different countries.

    Since now I live in New York, most of my paintings are devoted to this city.
