Hi there and welcome to my Patreon Page!

I’m Alina, an artist from beautiful Ukraine. I just joint Patreon (01.08.2019 yey) and I'm sooo excited. It's all new to me and I hope it's a brand new start for something huge and lovely and inspirational. 
I love painting and I love my paintings, that's why I also love making videos and photos and sharing all this stuff with people. So it's all about love love love! I'm still looking for my voice and my biggest dream is to be able someday to travel with my canvas and oil paint and to be painting all the beauty in the world. With your support I'll be able to make little steps to my dream, as to buy art supplies, developing my website and focusing on my project. You can join me on my artistic way if you like, 'cause with you, it'll be more awesome!

Below a lot of words about my way to art :D

I never studied art as a subject whatsoever, instead, I gravitated towards the languages and translation. It took me decades to find out what I want to do. I wouldn’t really call myself a ‘self-taught’ artist though. Being the ‘self-taught’ artist means to have a little or none formal training in this field and it sometimes might sound proudly as it involves more effort, more tries and fails.  But it’s not all about some formal training that helps to become an artist. I tend to think, the self-guidance and an inner feeling (artistic flair if you will) are much more significant. Everything I’ve learnt about art has been through this self-guided learning. So now the painting is my addiction, my best work, hobby, passion and meditation. I started with watercolours at first, but later I discovered my perfect medium - oil paint. I adore the smell of oil paint and blank canvas and more importantly, the possibility to mastering one day my medium so completely that my work itself will transcend the material. My self-guidance entails some inconsistency in my style as I’m still looking for my own individual vision and my voice. Texture and its relationship with depth fascinate me though, so I prefer working with palette knives in order to create certain illusive yet real-life-experienced quality and contrast. I’m also driven by the desire to bring up social issues in my paintings someday, bring these figuratively in front of people’s eyes. 

Also, please meet my strictest critic and my mentor Mona ^^
