ArtSkewl interview with Ellina Chetverikova

Art Academy of Cincinnati Alum, Ellina Chetverikova was born in Severodonetsk, Ukraine, in 1989. From a young age, she developed a  love of painting. Her painting practice is deeply grounded in the observation from life. It is an endless practice of experiencing, observing, filtering, and appreciating her surroundings. Through her extraordinary skill and brushwork, she captures the light, sunsets, and twilights with a beautiful intensity that leaves you with an exhilarating feeling of peace and respect for the world around us.

In this interview, we learn about Ellina’s life in Ukraine, how a dream of green grass and a golden retriever fueled her decision to come to America, and how she made the jump to practicing her art full-time. 

*This episode was recorded before Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Ellina Chetverikova has family living in Ukraine and is working to get them out and to safety. If you’re able to support Ellina in these efforts, please donate to the links below.
