BIO OF FIRST PLACE WINNER: SVETLANA KOVAL

“I was born in Russia, in the Siberian land near Lake Baikal, where I graduated from the local art school. I’ve always painted. After studying at the university, I began to participate in exhibitions and sales at local galleries. I really liked to draw Lake Baikal. Five years ago, my family and I moved to the USA. We settled in a beautiful location, Lancaster County, where I have participated in many exhibitions. At the moment I am studying at HACC, trying to learn more English. In my works I want to convey the admiration that I feel when contemplating the world around me. In some of my works, I add a deeper philosophical meaning, my reflections on life. While painting, I am always learning; learning something new, experimenting in painting techniques.”
