About Me

Irina Chaika was born in 1979 in Nikolaev – a city of shipbuilders, sailors and talented people. My childhood was spent near the sea so the theme of “Marina” is especially close to me.
Educated artist, a master of arts and crafts, and teacher. In 2003 I graduated Kiev National University of Culture and Arts. My teachers: for arts and crafts – Ivanitskaya Lidia; painting – Merkulov Valentin.
Member of creative projects and exhibitions. Author of folk and modern tapestries. An author of textile machinery.
I like nature, be a part of it and transfer it to the canvas state. Much of the work is written from nature.
My favorite creative tool – palette knife. That it helps to catch the moment and to transfer it to the canvas.
