My name is Olga Romanova. I am a professional artist in Oil Paintings, a member of International Federation of Artists. I am also a writer.
I was born in a family of artists in 1970. My great-grandfather was a Colonel and the inspector of the Don Army. My great-grandmother Zina was a Tolstoyan. She corresponded with Lev Tolstoy daughter - Tatiana Tolstoy.
I started painting when I was 2. In 1984 I finished the School of Arts and in 1988 I finished the College of Fine Arts in Penza. I liked those years.
Art has always been my passion. I knew from a very early age that art was going to be the most important in my life.
My way to Art has begun in Watercolor Painting. Watercolor Painting has given me freedom and has helped me to realize myself as a creative person. Oil Painting has given me sensation of flight and omnipotence. I like Oil Painting. I love to work with people and nature. I want to show beauty of a human soul, of nature. I call my work "penetration to mystery". Therefore, I have to reflect everything differently and the best possible. My way of working is to display the private world of the object as faithfully as possible.
My art works are not symbols of modern banalities and facelessness. I am not a dilettante with a sole primitive purpose – to create a spot of color for the interior, without thoughts and feelings. I am Artist. Art is my life. I am in developmental stage all time, because perfection has no limit.
Today I am the mature artist with my opinion and my place in Art. I am free from unnecessary illusions and other opinions. I know that I want and I know that I do not want. I have choice and it mine. I know value of creativity. I have possibility to work how I understand it and I feel it, without looking back at tendencies art-business. I do not catch mirages because I know my way. I don't owe anything to anybody and it makes me free. I still want and can think. I do not know depression, because I have faith in God. My future is in God’s hands, therefore I am quiet...
