My name is Tatiana Morozova. Since I was born, it took my mom a long time to figure what my name was going to be. However, my dad loved to paint, and he wasn’t bad at it too. So, when my dad came to the maternity hospital to see my mom and I, he handed her a little painting and on it was drawn a little baby carriage, and below was written “Tanya”. I think this was a sign given to me at birth, that in my near future it would be much easier to express my feelings and thoughts through painting, rather than saying them to someone.
And this began to manifest on itself from my early childhood. I was always drawing. At first where I could get it - on the walls of rooms. Then came albums, and paintings. Every free minute, every day, I painted. When the time came for me to go to school, my parents knew that I had to be sent to art school. These were the most amazing years of my childhood, fabulous lessons based on painting, learning diverse techniques, all taught by such intelligent teachers.
Unfortunately, when it came time to decide on the choice of my future profession, and the choice of faculty at the university, my parents insisted and persuaded me to go to law school because it gave more opportunities, in their opinion, in my future. Thus, I received higher education at Grodno University and became a lawyer. Despite choosing law over art, I never gave up painting. Whenever I had free time from my schoolwork, I painted. I continued to draw and develop my creative skills on my own.
After my graduation, I worked, for some time, in the City Hall Archive, but the pay was very little. The impossibility of career growth, boredom, same exact work all the time, and the hated job with paperwork forced me to leave Grodno, and work in another country.
And this new country was Italy, precisely the city of Rome. It was as if I had traveled to a new world filled with: the bright sun, tremendous amounts of ancient history, green parks, a turquoise sea, but most importantly, people filled with happiness, optimism, and energy. For myself, I chose not the highest paying job - distributing store ads and throwing it in special advertising cassettes. However, this job gave me the opportunity every day to see how the city of Rome wakes up. How the owners of small cafe shops go outside in the mornings to breath in fresh air, how they open the cafes cheerfully and greet every single neighbor. I walked the wonderful streets of Rome, and my mind was constantly remembering all the images, smells, and sounds that filled the city. Entire pictures appeared in my head! And even more, I remember all the amazing, unforgettable, unique natures of Italy - the Mediterranean Sea, little towns, mountains covered with cedar, sunrises and sunsets. I did not have time to draw everything I saw on canvases, but I drew little sketches in my notebook, hoping that when I would get home, I could draw them with my oil paints.
After returning home for family reasons, I had to work for some time in the specialty I had received from university, as it was economically difficult. I hated this job with paperwork, and having to memorize all the legislation work that had changed every single month in my country by decree. Like always, in my free time I drew, and it was my way of unplugging from the world, and releasing everything that I had built up inside of me onto a canvas.
Then family life began, and a very important role came into play, my husband. He insisted that I quit my unloved job, and finally go after my dream of becoming a professional artist.
The past couple years, I have been an artist. Yes, I am a self-taught artist, and a majority of professional artists who have graduated college and art academies look down on me, but I am doing what I love and there is nothing wrong with that. I am happy because I paint and because it is my favorite thing to do on this Earth. I believe I was made for painting.
I like many different art forms and styles. I like to experiment and see what I can come up with on the spot, try something new. I'm interested in design and fashion trends. I paint mainly oil and acrylic paintings on high-quality canvas. I use many different styles in my paintings, such as: landscape, portrait, still-life, portrait from photos, and much more. I also love painting murals because the sizes are so big and you load the canvas with all you’ve got.
I try to create my own unique world: a world of shapes, colors and light. My work is a part of me, it reflects my mood, my experiences, my interests. I like to surprise people, I like to see that my works evoke feelings and their own associations, harmony and aesthetic pleasure in them. And as an artist, I am very happy to leave a person content. I hope you will be interested in my work.
