hello, my name is helen kishkurno. i studied at the kharkiv state art college, then at the kharkiv state academy of design and art. i am member of the national artists’ union of ukraine since 2005. participant of the national and foreign exhibitions. having restorer’s education, i am an artist by vocation: i paint landscapes, still-lifes, portraits. most of all i can be inspired by nature and people, so different and unlike. and to my mind, a painter may show him worth to the utmost, express his qualification and his god-given talent extent just in the portrait genre.
