I was born in a family where reigned the veneration of the book, which I imbibed with mother's milk ". Studied in both artistic and mathematical schools. After some doubts and fears (mostly from parents), I opted for a draw. Moscow Polygraphic Institute gave me the opportunity to combine these two passions: drawing and book. In this institute there, and beautiful pictorial tradition can be, so I'm still doing easel painting. True, the theme of my paintings are all based again on the book, or rather a book of books - the Bible.
Most of all I love working with children's books. Always choose the texts, giving maximum improvisation. I need to feel a full collaborator, working with text, and create a parallel series of fabulous in their illustrations. This is the most interesting and most difficult. During these years he wrote more than 30 books with my illustrations. This books. Kozlov, B. Zakhoder AND. Pivovarova, C. Rassadina, D. Bill, Russian folk tales, as well as a. A. Milne and A. Carroll.

. In painting all the time seeking a path to the picture to Geneva more adequate biblical style and time
. Formerly, they were canvases, banners, now - carved pieces of wood. Biblical stories talking very freely, tk. all the time living with the feeling that our life - is a continuation of the Bible and the Bible prophecy can be found on our every day.
