Anna Starkova is a wife, a mother, and a fine artist. There are many more roles she plays every day but those three are the most important roles in her life that fulfill her as a person.
Art has always been her biggest passion since childhood. Although she chose business education, she has never let her inside artist down. She has taken multiple classes at art studios and museums, but mostly she learned on her own and she continues mastering her techniques all the time. Her relocation from Moscow, Russia to Boston, MA in 2009 was fundamental to her and from that moment her perception of herself as an artist changed and her absolute desire to become a professional artist dominated and she couldn’t hide behind her fears and lack of confidence anymore. She started painting more and more, opening up her soul, revealing her emotions.
She has received several awards and been selected to participate in many juried art exhibitions throughout New England and New York City. Her paintings are in private collections all around the world: USA, Russia, UK, Belgium, Sweden, Australia, UAE, India, and Japan.
