My name is Natalja Picugina. I am a native Russian . I was born in Latvia, A beautiful resort city on the Baltic Sea. Art is my passion. I took art lessons from various artists in Latvia, Russia and Eastern Europe. I have University degree in History. I taught basic art classes to children in elementary school.. I also worked with various artists to organize and teach basic to advanced art classes for adults. I believe art needs to show feelings, expression and technique. My paintings come from my soul. I feel my art reflects a mood of the moment captured in time, something that will never be back. All my paintings are created on canvas panels. I work with mostly oil, and sometimes acrylics. I work every day to improve my skills and create new paintings. I want to share with you the moments and expressions in my world of paintings.
