I'm a composer, arranger, guitar player and producer, combining world music heritage in my cutting-edge music projects, believing that boundaries between musical genres in 21st century are very much blurring.


I'm an experienced and motivated musical educator, music theorist, trying to inspire my student getting out of their comfort zone and expand the boundaries of music.

I was born in Barnaul, Russia. I started my professional career as a Musician, Composer and Musical educator in Moscow. Now I currently live in Groningen, the Netherlands.

With love and passion I'm developing my musical style as a composer and guitar player, which I tend to call "Impressionistic Jazz", based on the project "The Skypainters". I'm very much inspired by Modern Jazz, Classical music of the beginning of the 20th century, Opera classical tradition, contemporary music.
