My name is Svetlana Novikova. I was born and raised in Moscow, Russia. I was classically trained in Art in Russia, and I also recieved an Art education in the US. Art has always been an important part of my life since I was a small child.
Throughout my life, I've always been drawn to vibrant colors, textures, and dynamic compositions. I love expressing what I feel in my paintings. My goal is to have an emotional impact on my viewer through my artwork, whether it's an equine painting, an animal artwork, a cityscape, or a figurative image.
I began developing my style of painting about 18 years ago. I was influenced by some Russian and European impressionists, love for color, and my life experiences.
My favorite mediums are watercolor, oil, and acrylics. I love using palette knives...
I am available for commissioned paintings and portraits, private and group art instructions, workshops, illustrations, murals, and more. Please bookmark my website for updates and information about new works and services.
I also offer some of my images as Giclee prints, hand embelished prints. gift items (calendars, mugs, apparel, etc)
