Born in Siberia Russia, in 1937. 1960 graduate of Moscow Institute of International relations, foreign policy analyst. From the early years at school I was very much fond of drawing which turned into my hobby for years to come. Took classes of drawing in the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City, in the early 1960-s, but throughout my career as analyst could not spare much time to painting. Would rather qualify as Sunday painter. Now that I am retired I intend to devote all of my free time to painting. I venture to show herewith some of my works of various years which have never been seen outside my family and would appreciate any critique. Thank you in advance.
