Artist and Montessori Teacher
Mother of two daughters, 6 and 3 years old
I am looking after my children and running the household at the moment. My husband is traditionally minded and happily supports us all and I love it! I also believe that men are supposed to provide for their families while women take care of the home and the children. I think that a housewife’s role is very important and challenging.
In my spare time I paint. This is how I satisfy my human need for creativity. I need to paint in order to be a good mother, I think. My plan this year is to do 10 large-scale oil paintings, organize an exhibition and set up a little Montessori course for young Russian children and their mothers in Geneva. I’d also like to learn French, and to play the piano. I am always trying to find a happy balance between my family and creative or professional life, but I’d never sacrifice the luxury of bringing up my children myself. To raise a young child and turn her into a successful person is the most important task for me now.

I have accomplished huge achievements in my professional life as an artist. Slowly but constantly I am working on my art projects. My children are still the priority in my life. I still spend the majority of my time with them. They are nine and seven now. I am very happy with them.
