Таисия Швецова

Taisiya Shvetsova’s painting is at times reverent and vulnerable and sometimes monumental and simple has some unexplainable latent feelings whose power can’t but impress everyone. The gift of God is combined in the paintress with the untutored modesty, creative fertility, craving for beauty and the complete absence of academic artistic education. However, this makes her pictures more original and interesting. The everlasting search and doubts make her find new subjects for her pictures, immersing us into this festival given by the generous hand of Taisiya Alexandrovna Shvetsova.
