KATYA SHEPARD

"I am a British based Russian artist. I studied at the St Petersburg Academy of Art where I was awarded a distinction in my painting and portraiture degree. I have exhibited my work in Russia, France and Britain, including Mall Galleries (Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, Royal Institute of Oil Painters, Royal Society of Portrait Painters and Society of Women artists), and The Great Art Fair at Alexandra Palace.

I like to follow the best traditional techniques but also to experiment with different materials and styles, which is reflected in my commissions ranging from portraits to murals. For example, I have painted a portrait of Sir David Howard, the Lord Mayor of the City of London in 2001. I also participated in an international Art competition in France, and was awarded a prize (Prix de la Société TVS).

Life is beautiful and I am trying to catch its ever changing splendour in all its diversity of colour, subjects and style, finding signs of beauty and life everlasting on my way."
