Svetlana was born and raised in Belarus and has been living in New Zealand since 2002.
Her journey in the art world began when she felt a strong urge to step into an art shop and buy some oil paints. She had no idea what to do with them at first so began watching YouTube videos. Experimenting with different art styles, techniques, mediums and taking private lessons with Otago artist, Anneloes Douglas, who supported and guided her, she finally found her “style”.
With a background in nursing and beauty therapy Svetlana has managed to combine the healing energy of crystals into her art. Real selenite crystals are often used to heal and help with negative energies, attention disorders, pregnancies and much more.
“With time and effort, a ton of care, I have spilt my heart into each of my works every time I grab a brush or tinker with resin. My resin art has a multitude of layers infused with acrylic paints, alcohol inks, minerals and glowing powder (in some instances) to give the painting a three dimensional look and depth.
My new found love of art has given me a new purpose and has opened my heart and mind to a whole new universe of creativity.”
