I was born on October 7, 1955 in the village of Bukachach, Chernyshevsky district of the Trans-Baikal Territory. In 1978 I graduated from the Tomsk Polytechnic Institute. I worked until 1992 at the Prokopyevsk Porcelain Factory in executive positions. In 1992 I moved to Ukraine. I have been engaged in painting since 2000.
