One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Opened my CS page during the WorldCup 2018! Sooo many interesting people stayed with me!

Last year I missed my flight from Leipzig at Christmas Eve and local people hosted me, so I had spontaneous Christmas! it was one of best days in my life, best Christmas ever!

I also met a jazz musician in Germany and we've collaborated an artwork for his band together.
This summer hosted an Italian musician and ended up participating to his jazz festival in Pavia as an artist and art teacher.

Teach, Learn, Share

One of most beautiful and sophisticated languages - Russian)
I also play bass guitar. We can perform something together. I can also teach you painting. If you are in Stockholm during summer feel free to participate in one of my outdoor sketching events.
If you are dancing salsa I can bring you to a social dance event (running again after a COVID break)
