“For me, creativity is not a thing. It is a way of doing things.”
’A true artist works every single day, every hour of his existence, all his life, because he cannot live without creativeness’
I have been working in performing arts for quite a while wearing many hats as a pianist, song writer, music educator, playwright, director, producer employing my creative vision.
My creative path began with my teaching career. For me teaching is a platform – to create, learn and improvise both for children and adults. Teaching became an inspiration for me to transpose my visual imaginings onto paper to compose plays and music.
The earliest forms of theatre work I created were short musical plays crafted specially to be performed by school students. But with an overwhelming positive response, I was encouraged to consolidate and expand the materials into full-length staged productions performed at the local festivals, Sydney Fringe and Bondi Theatre Festival, that targeted family audiences.
My creative pursuit was accompanied by education which I completed in Russia gaining a Bachelor of Education, Drama and later expanded in Australia with successful completion of master’s degrees in Music and Linguistics.
I am a theatre practitioner, facilitator, and creator of various music/theatre events.
Encouraged by the positive feedback of community and industry professionals I continue my creative journey every day working on new projects, refining current ones, bringing my creative ideas to life.
“It was a great show, the show to be remembered, because of the cheerful music and the songs”.
