ABOUT

My name is Margarita Fomenko and I'm a Russian watercolor artist living in the US. 

When I started my art journey with watercolors, I immediately fell in love with its transparency, softness and glow. Watercolors are a bit unpredictable and that's what makes it such a unique medium to work with.

 

All of my paintings were inspired by the beautiful landscapes of the areas I lived in or have visited. While some areas are dominated by rolling mountains, bright sunny days, and ocean views; others are influenced by cityscapes with historical buildings and four seasons with their own color mood.

My techniques and color palettes keep changing depending on the motif, momentary mood or the subject I paint. I like to have some loose moments in my artwork which leaves some mystery and room for imagination.
