Inna is originally from the South
Western part of Russian Siberia.
She was born in a family of
geologists and from the first
days of her life was surrounded
by the romanticism of
scientific expeditions and the
beauty of Siberian nature.
Inna graduated from one of
the most prestigious art
schools of the region in the
mid-90-s and tried herself in graphic design
and jewelry making, participating in multiple projects and
exhibitions. She headed an art project on behalf of the Siberian division of Science that was later presented to Vladimir Putin. In 2004 Inna relocated to the USA. Moving away from home and traditional oil and pastels she developed a new technique of painting with pigmented polymers on stone, glass, canvas and wood. Stained glass look of her newly developed works slightly resembles warm and earthy collages made of natural stones that her parents used to bring back from their geological expeditions. Natural beauty of minerals has always been Inna's main inspiration.
