Galina is a British artist of Russian heritage. She was born in the Russian city of Ekaterinburg and grew up in Russia where art was a big part of her education. Right from elementary school, Galina had art lessons almost every day, it was a lot of fun, but it didn’t feel special, it didn’t speak to her heart. In University, she got two bachelor’s degrees: one in jewellery production and design, and the other in economics and business management.
Galina moved to London over a decade ago and found my way to art after a difficult time in her life. During that time, she took interest in the spiritual aspects of life, studied ancient practices as well as neuroscience, molecular biology and quantum physics. She desperately wanted to reflect her thoughts and feelings in a physical way through art. This inspired her to develop this unique expressionist style of abstract painting using mixed media on canvas.
