Irina Malkmus   Solvang, CA
I was born in the city of Kharkov in the former USSR,what is now known as Ukraine. When I was young I liked to draw what I had seen that day,or was thinking about. At school I would draw doodles in the margins of my textbooks to help me remember the lessons. After school I wanted to study at the art institute, but those were difficult years in my country and my mother urged me to take a more practical career path. I graduated from medical college and became a nurse.

During the end of my studies at university I met my future husband, and a year later we moved to America. Here I returned to my passion for art. I began to develop my own skills in my home studio. My favorite subjects are people, animals and using my imagination. To express myself, I use different mediums ... acrylic,oil, mixed media, 3-D, wool felting, pewter and jewelry.

My dream is to be seen, heard and understood. My concept art is a reflection of what is happening through the prism of feminism.
