Beautiful Small Paintings perfect gift for any occasion

Hello. I am Nataliya and I am a fine artist, art teacher, and mom of two. I have been painting since I was eight years old. As I was growing up in the cold city of Leningrad in the former Soviet Union, I had a dear friend who was on the path to become an artist and who was willing to teach. That's how the seed of art was planted in me, which my parents supported and encouraged. My artistic adventures and education continued when we immigrated to the States 27 years ago. My art has evolved over the years and, now I am taking yet another path of creating smaller more affordable pieces, that will bring joy to you all. I am sure there will be more artistic journeys for me, and I would love to share them with you... I hope you will be my traveling companion. Whether your purchase allows me to buy more art supplies or allows me to visit new places to get inspiration, every time someone supports my work it inspires me to carve-out more time to paint and create beautiful work to share. I want my paintings to bring happiness and peace into your home. Every penny goes back to creating for all of you. So thank you in advance to everyone for letting me live my dream and bring beauty and joy into your lives. Winter holidays is the perfect time to treat yourself or your loved ones to a beautiful unique present. Please come back often to see new pieces.

For these paintings you may name the price that you feel the paintings are worth to you. You will also be able to see the framed paintings once you click on the "buy" button. Additionally, I will be happy to accomodate your needs for a commission piece.

"Your work brings out to me the true landscape of the area you are painting of - whether it be the frenzied New York City or the calming Kiawah beach. You have an ability to draw the viewer into how you interpreted the area not how the viewer would. You have a very unique way of painting and I just love It!"
