I was born on January 30, 1938 in the Belgorod region in the family of a priest. Since childhood he had a bright ability to draw, but did not receive professional art education. Learned to draw on his own. Since 1982 began to actively exhibit as an amateur artist. Became a silver medalist at the exhibition VDNH USSR in 1988 with the painting "Last News". From 1990 to 2010 he was mainly engaged in icon painting. For the time being, I stopped drawing.
