I am an experienced article writer, with lots of experience in developing and researching keyword rich articles. I have worked as a part time journalist for a local newspaper, so I also have experience writing hard hitting stories as well. I am extremely resourceful and I only need a few, clear instructions before I go off and work on my own. I am extremely picky on deadlines, meaning that I always hand in my work on time, or more preferably, ahead of time. I have a very creative writing style, and I am very versatile with the different voices that I use within my writing. I am a passionate, clever, creative, witty, and hard working writer. I hope to be working with some of you soon.

Though I was born in a small Ukrainian village in 1987, the only place I have ever called home is Chicago, Illinois. Since my family’s immigration to the United States from the former Soviet Union in 1989, I have had the fortune of experiencing the arts in multifaceted ambiances, cultures, and genres throughout my life, thus coming to understand that my passion for expression through the arts allows no room for self-limitation. My grandfather, renowned artist Yury Kanzburg, has served as my most inspirational and critical instructor from the earliest stages of my artistic education. Through traditional old-world training and the study of composition, value, line, color, and form, I learned to appreciate and apply the essential elements of art and design. Experimenting with gouache, watercolors, tempera, oil, acrylic, charcoal, pastels, ink, and graphite in my compositions from a very young age, I became quickly comfortable with a vast array of media and various techniques. By re-creating the works of masters such as Rembrandt, Da Vinci, and Goya, as well as sketching constantly to quickly capture the essence of the natural world, I was able to develop the skill and patience necessary to work between arduous, detailed studies, while concurrently building the ability to swiftly capture ephemeral instants in time. Insistent that I have a strong foundation and skill base before delving into my conceptual work, my grandfather exposed me to the rudiments which constitute my personal understanding of the multifaceted nature of contemporary visual culture. A simultaneous desire to teach and thirst to learn compelled me to earn my BFA in Fine Arts and Art Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in the spring of 2011. My 6-12 teaching certificate is supplemented by an English endorsement, allotting me the aptitude to merge both artistic and linguistic domains. I have acquired substantial experience in the secondary education field and have had the opportunity to teach hundreds of aspiring young artists from within and around the Chicago metropolis. I place great emphasis on considering the visual and literary arts within cultural and historical contexts through extensive investigation of various wet, dry, and digital two and three-dimensional media, methods, and practices, as well as consistent critical analysis of diverse subject matter, concepts, and interpretations. Inquiry-based discourse and the dissection of aesthetic, technical, and conceptual elements in the works of practicing historical and contemporary artists and authors are equally essential in my mission to make meaningful inter-vocational associations. I am constantly seeking new and diverse opportunities to submerge myself in settings that have the capacity to drive me in developing as an artist, teacher, and perpetual learner, while simultaneously providing an environment saturated with creative energy that is ready to be absorbed.
