Born in 1966 in Volgograd (formerly Stalingrad), Russia.

Growing up under the Soviet authoritarian regime, when in order to survive
ordinary Russians had to wear that drab look of obedience and self
suppression, I had always wanted to escape from that total uniformity and
find the way to express my vision in life in a different way, reflecting a
happier, funny side of everyday existence. My characters sometimes seem
emotionally isolated, keeping to themselves, even when they are
clustered in groups, but they are not lacking emotions, they only express
them in their own way. They are content and happy, yet they do not take
themselves too seriously.

Graduated from the Architectural institute in 1988 with a degree and a
diploma in Architecture and Design and a Diploma in technical translating.

Worked as an architect until 1990, when moved from Volgograd to Moscow.
During the years of Perestroika worked as an interior designer, technical
translator and studied arts and drawing.
