My name is Nina Krymova.

I was born in Kerch on April 21st, 1969. I live and work in Kaliningrad. Since 2001, I am a member of the Union of Russian Artists. I graduated from the Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia in Saint Petersburg (Faculty of Art and Graphics). The subject of my graduation thesis is «City Landscape Series of Pictures» (thesis supervisor: Prof. V. Kuzmichev, Dean of Faculty of Art).

I am a master of panel painting and mural. I am a drawing, painting and composition teacher at my art school. I regularly take part in regional and international exhibitions and plein-air painting.

I continue experimenting in my creative search and I have not stuck in any one and only technique that an artist usually chooses to present their works in the diverse world of art. I consider this characteristic as a feature, an individuality of my artistic career. Although my «touch», my artistic style, always remains fundamentally unchanged for I recognize it even in my students’ works when slightly correcting their drawing or painting.

At the moment, I am looking for new means of expression in painting as well as new topics which correspond to the present-day global picture. I am also inspired with educator’s activity because I cannot but feel happy about my educatees’ success who entered the most prestigious universities in Russia and study there. These are the I. Repin St. Petersburg State Academy Institute of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture (Saint Petersburg) and the Herzen State Pedagogical University of Russia (Saint Petersburg), the Saint Petersburg State University of Industrial Technologies and Design, the Russian Institute of Theatre Arts — GITIS (Moscow), the Institute of Decorative and Applied Arts (Saint Petersburg) and the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk. I have got the feeling that over these 15 years of my educator’s work I have entered and graduated from all these universities, including the B. Ioganson Saint Petersburg State Academy Art Lyceum, the A. Venetsianov Tver Regional Art College and the N. Roerich Saint Petersburg Art School.

Although art activities are widely advertised and practiced for psychotherapy as art therapy and in art shows and art hobbies, I prefer a traditional approach in teaching the basics of art as the only right way that leads to mastery and proficiency.I ca n comprehensibly and clearly explain difficult topics, I give knowledge that inspires and makes one confident in their abilities and pursuing their dreams.

My motto is I draw and I let others draw.
