Arina was born in Kharkiv in 1997 and shortly after that moved to Moscow, where she grew up and had her first painting lessons in workshops of professional painters. During Covid19 time Arina discovered her love for watercolour painting again, she took online courses and attended workshops by watercolour artists, like Evgenia Korpunina, Konstantin Sterkhov, Andy Evansen and Anna Ivanova.
In her watercolour paintings, Arina captures beautiful nature or city landscapes, people in motion and the bond between them.
In autumn 2021 Arina and a small group of young artists launched the ‘1 euro Art for Charity’ auction and collected over 700 euros that were sent to 3 charity projects. In February 2023 Arina had her first solo exhibition ‘Catching the Moments’ in the Encanto Art Cafe in Helsinki and sold her first paintings. She also started her series of intuitive oil paintings.

I was born in the south of Russia, in the Krasnodar, in 1978.
After school, I studied at the Krasnodar Art School in the Design department (1994 - 1998). After graduating from Krasnodar Art School I was invited to work at the State Krasnodar Musical Theater, as a decorator (1999 - 2003).
In 2003, I entered the St. Petersburg State Academy of Arts and Industry named after A.L. Stieglitz at the Department of Ceramics and Glass (2003 - 2009). During my studies and after studying I participated in exhibitions in St. Petersburg.
After studying, I worked in a mosaic workshop and a stained glass workshop. I worked as an art critic in painting salons.
In 2012 I got married and moved to Finland.
I have a small workshop where I continue to work with glass, and I also like to experiment and use different materials in my works.
