MINI-BIO  Here's a CV kind of thing and another one is here. A more personal illustrated autobio is in slow ongoing progress here.

Born in Paris, raised in South America, USA and Europe, I live in London. My father was Russian, my mother French. My alter ego is the cartoon character Augustine and her blog is Blaugustine and its Mirror Blog.

Art education in Paris, New York, San Miguel Allende, Mexico and London. My work as painter, printmaker, book-artist and cartoonist is described elsewhere on this site. I've had many part-time jobs including: window-display designer, hotel receptionist, theatre box-officer, filmscript writer, editor, fringe theatre performer, co-director of the Centre for the Imagination (London 1980's).

Apart from making art, my main self-supporting activity has been teaching in adult education - drawing, painting, printmaking, book arts. It's my conviction, supported by experience, that every individual regardless of age, background or education has some unique creative ability which can be encouraged, developed and in some cases become the driving force in their lives. In London I taught at Camden Arts Centre, the City Literary Institute and Stanhope Institute. I was visiting artist at Colorado College, Colorado Springs and lectured at American and European colleges. I give workshops and talks on aspects of creativity, printmaking and my own work.

LANGUAGES: French, English, Italian, Spanish. Some Portuguese, a tiny bit of Russian.
