My name is Tatiana Oles. I am an artist. The purpose of my life is to grow spiritually, to be creative , and to teach people what I can do. I was born in Chishinau, the Capital of Moldova. In 1971 I graduated from Children's Art School., A.V Shchusev, Chisinau, Rep. Moldova. In 1979 I graduated from Academic School of Fine Arts 'Igor Vieru' in Chisinau and thus began my creative life as a decorator and pictorial artist. This did not stop my desire to continue my education and in 1989 I received a degree in Russian Language and Literature from the Moldova State University in the city of Kishinev . For six years there after I worked as a teacher of art and design and participated in art exhibitions in Chisinau and Leningrad (St. Petersburg) until 2000.
