About The Artist

I always wanted to be an artist and this passion only evolved through my time at an art school for children. However, the time soon came where I had to make a decision for my future. I ended up choosing to study business at university, as it was the safest most secure route to take. Fortunately, after 15 years of forgetting my passion, I found myself wandering back to art.

This reminiscence was pushed by my first pregnancy, where I began to search for creative jobs that I could complete in the comfort of my home. This gave me experience in Photoshop, which guided me to pursue digital artistry. Now, my art has been published in a number of magazines and art-books. This led me to work as a book illustrator.

When I picked up a paintbrush again after a few years, the rush of inspiration forced my hand to return back to traditional art. Today, my biggest aspiration is to become a professional artist and keep doing what I love.

From a young age, I’ve always wanted to be an artist. Forever inspired by the scenic world around me, I sought out a way to recreate and transform the beauty seen into something of my own. I shape my art primarily using oil paints, acrylic paints, and coloured pencils.

Natural Landscapes & Floral Art

Paintings by Ascot, Berkshire Artist Yana Kucheeva 

My references consist mostly of natural landscapes, that I have either experienced from holidays, or walks through the forest with my dog, Sunny. These are the times I could see nature in its purest, truest form. I turn these images into paintings; using oil paints to build and add depth, from the breadth of the tree bark, to the veins in the leaves, and the froth of the ocean waves.

I aim to capture the magical essence within nature by using lighting, and a choice of colour scheme that results in landscapes entangled with fairytale qualities. These qualities leave an impact that feels comforting, refreshing, and can serve as a reminder for the eternal beauty that exists around us.

I also paint idyllic flowers; still life, from transforming seemingly mundane things into art; plus pet portraits, that keep memories alive forever.

I hope that my art will bring you the same solace and joy it brought me when creating it.
