Hi there, and welcome to my world!
My nickname is Natalka Barvinok, and I have been an artist for the last four decades. From the time I was just a little girl, I dreamed of being a painter. Well, wouldn’t you know it — when I graduated from Art college, I was invited to teach at the art school I attended as a child.
I was fortunate to be able to share my knowledge and vision with my little students. I taught while receiving from them their gift of spontaneity, and directness, purity, and openness. We did great things together: my students participated and won at local, regional, federal, and international competitions. At the same time, I led art classes for all ages in my studio.
These days, I create paintings, drawings, objets d’art. My art statement: I use creativity as a means of self-expression, to identify my subconscious, and to express my interpretation the world around me. My paintings are a window into alternative reality. I try to present my art as a visual space from realistic moments to an explosion impressionistic and surrealistic images. My choice of subjects comes from my interest images of beauty, and emotional connections. Also, I provide deferent art events cush as face painting, art classes for kids, adults, and an entire family.
My yoga practice and travels help me to continue seeing the world through an artistic lens, while constant contact with the works of the great masters of the past and present at museums and galleries feeds my inspiration. Please explore my Art and the prize-winning creations of my students on this website, and please feel free to get in touch with me if you need an art teacher, illustrator, painter or decorator (My Awards). I believe that any life that makes your space for creativity and art is wonderful!
I’m taking orders for oil paintings such as portraits landscapes, murals, etc. Please feel free to contact me on the Contact page
