Tatiana V. Yanovskaya was born in Ukraine . The only child of working class parents, Tatiana was raised in a Soviet-style “doma” in Ukraine 's largest industrial city just 550 miles south of Moscow . Throughout her school years she was exposed to the paintings of the greatest Russian and Ukrainian traditional artists. Although well cared for, Tatiana was a lonely child and relied on a vivid imagination to occupy and express her creativity through ballet dancing (Nut Cracker) and play acting in school and local theatre events. Unable to afford a piano Tatiana was discouraged from pursuing her first inclination toward the arts – music. In primary and secondary school she was, however, able to take basic courses in drawing and design in the local art schools and art studios.
She started to study drawing and painting while living in Ukraine . However, seriously she continues the pursuit of art in 1998.
