I welcome you to my gallery!
My name is Valeria Lakrisenko. I am a professional painter and have been painting for more than 10 years. I graduated from Saint-Petersburg Academy of Arts, Department of Paintings, V. Pesikov's workshop and B. Ioganson St. Petersburg State Academy Art Lyceum.
I was raised by a strong classical art school, and my education gave me indispensable experience and diverse set of skills, including solid drawing technique and anatomy knowledge. I've tried different styles and materials on my way of forming of my own style. Now I'm enjoying next, independent stage of my life as an artist with all my skills helping me to bring to life all my ideas, refine my own artistic style. I'm happy to be able to dedicate my life to art. I put my heart and soul into my artworks, and I am honoured that many of my artworks have been noticed.
My drawings and paintings were repeatedly included in the annual exhibition of the best artistic works of Saint-Petersburg Academy of Arts. I was rewarded for great achievements in education and have the honour of having had many of works, considered to have been of exceptional quality, selected for the academy's own collection. Many of my art works are in private collections, museums and have won prizes in international competitions.
I hope you'll enjoy my artworks!
