At the age of 15 I decided to go to Art school. There I studied the standards of academic art which included knowledge about composition, colour and proportion. My teacher constantly described my works as very accurate and as something more modern and free of rules. That has inspired and encouraged me to pursue a career in the art industry. I really enjoy sophisticated works that are full of skills and experience of the artist. This is what you can expect to see in my own projects.
My name is Yana Shapkina. I was born in Belarus in a small town near the capital Minsk. I was always surrounded by nature, fresh air and healthy food. My homeland has always been of great influence in my artistic expression. Light, natural forms and colours, expressed in an unpretentious style.
