Inna is a classically trained artist who was born in Serglov Posad, near Moscow, Russia.  At age 10 she was accepted in the Sergiev Posad Art School, and then studied watercolor painting with Ivan Kharchenko. In 1988 she was accepted in the Moscow Art University for the five-year Master Program of Art and Graphics.

Inna followed a path into computer art and graphics and worked on major projects of the fantasy worlds games. In 2007 she took an Ala Prima class, which led her to study under famous American-Armenian artist Ovanes Berbarian. His passion for colors had a huge influence on Inna's art.  His workshop was a great source of inspiration for Inna and fueled her love of still life painting.

Nancy Seamons Crookston

Painting a Portrait in Oils

                MAP

Nancy studied art with Russian master Sergei Bongart in Thornton, Idaho.  She attended Idaho State University and Utah State University.  She was drawn to the quality of a simple time and to the Old World feel of the European countryside.  She is attracted to the human figure in moments of stillness and reflection, which she masterfully captures in her portraits.  She teaches workshops across the nation, helping painters learn the priniples of Russian Color, which she learned from Sergei Bongart.

Nancy has been the recipient of countless prestigeous awards.  Her work can be seen in galleries throughout the United States, and she has exhibitions in the U.S., Japan, and China.
