TATIANA RUSANOVSKA
Tatiana developed a strong inclination to art early in her childhood. Studies at an Art School in her hometown Kremenchuk, Ukraine, brought Tatiana to mastering the basics of drawing, painting, art history and sculpture. Teachers helped cultivate Tatiana’s talents and taught her to appreciate the beauty of a colourful world. As a student, her work won regional contests. During that period she was inspired by the works of Leonardo Da Vinci as a revolutionist in the Renaissance Art. After graduating from the Art School with distinction she entered the prestigious College of Applied Arts & Design in Kiev, Ukraine. The influence of European and Russian artists from the brink of the 19th and 20th centuries became more pronounced in her style and works. Upon graduating from the college in 1993 Tatiana moved to St. Petersburg, where she worked as an Artist, Graphic Designer and Illustrator with diverse media and techniques.

Her paintings, batiks and fine embroidery decorate many of offices as well as private collections. As an artist Tatiana works primarily in oil using brushes and art knives, and graphic techniques. Another favourite of Tatiana’s media is Batik. She is a master in both the hot wax and Gutta techniques. Utilisation of a trade secret within the hot wax technique makes Tatiana’s batiks emanate live energy. She creates volume with a unique use of colour. The very existence of her works bear evidence to this, as well as reflect the warmth and rich colour palette of her homeland. Since 2003 Tatiana lives and works as a freelance illustrator, graphic designer and fine artist in Greater Toronto Area, Canada.
