Home Drawings Bio

My name is Marie Sokolova. I was born on June 12, 2002 in Donetsk, Ukraine. I had lived there for six years. Then my family moved to USA. Now I live in Greenwich, CT with my dad Michael, mom Kate, my little brothers Sasha and Michael, and Luke, the Sheltie.

I study a lot and I love music. My school is Greenwich Central Middle School, where I also take violin lessons. I also play violin in Stamford Young Artist Philarmony. And at home, my dad teaches me piano and guitar.

I take art classes from Felicity Kostakis. She is a very good artist, and I am really proud that she is my mentor. Felicity teaches me everything about art. She makes me feel what I paint, and helps me to learn from paintings. With her I learn different art styles: Rococo, Impressionism, Academic art, Metamorphic style... I also like Chinese art, and I am inspired by the works of great Russian artists, K. Bryullov, M. Vrubel, I. Aivazovsky and others.

When I grow up, I dream to become an architect.
