I graduated from Odessa, Ukraine with a degree in Marine science. I lived and studied in Poland and Germany before I moved to Anchorage, Alaska where I am teaching Reiki, Yoga, and do language interpreting in Russian, German and Polish.
During the past few years, our family started spending more time in Maui where I fell in love with the Big Blue, free diving (or apnea diving on one breath) and underwater photography.
What started as a hobby, continues to grow into something greater each time I dive into this other universe - the Ocean.
Last year three of my photos were chosen for the underwater diving Editor’s favorites of the National Geographic Your Shot Community - a big step forward considering that this community has thousands of photos, many of which are taken by professional divers and photographers.
I am very happy to share my passion and love of the ocean’s beauty, to open a small window for those who have never experienced that other BLUE WORLD, and maybe give them some motivation and inspiration to explore it.
My photos are printed on aluminum or canvas and ready for display. All prints are for sale. If you are interested, please contact me at:
