My name is Alexandra Shpitonkova, I'm an artist from Moscow, Russia.
I have a degree in fine arts from one of the leading art school in Russia - Surikov Art Institute. I professionaly do painting since 2015, I took part in 5 exhibitions in Moscow, also I give live classes and plain-airs.
My main inspiration in art is animals and wild nature. The beauty and uniqueness of animals is not the only thing I strive to express in my paintings. I absolutely believe that wild living creatures have a lot in common with human beings, especially character, emotions, preferences and much more. That is what inspires me more than everything else.
Among my «models» there are wild cats, birds, crocodiles, porcupines, hoofed mammals and I constantly look for new ones!
Also I have two stunning Abyssinian cats, which always inspire me and give true feedback on my work.
