I am a full-time stained glass designer and maker who works in the stunning Tiffany technique to design and create diverse stained glass home decor and interior objects. I am based in St Petersburg, Russia, where I was born and brought up. 

I started my own business in 2017, although by that time I had been engaged in the stained glass sphere for about five years. My sister and I had a joint studio where we created complex stained glass projects that required complex installation work to be incorporated into the interiors. This process led me to the idea of creating stained glass pieces that could be added to interiors without unnecessary difficulties.
