Emiliya Lane is a Russian born, professionally trained artist living, painting and teaching in Seattle, WA.She has been drawing and painting since she was three years old.Emiliya's parents were very supportive of her artistic gifts and enrolled her into art school at age 7. She has been constantly surrounded by the visual arts ever since.After graduating from high school at the age of 16, Lane was simultaneously accepted to Ural State University and offered a job at a local film studio as an animator. So, the artist accepted the position at the Sverdlovsk Film Studio and remained there for fifteen years.After relocating to the United States, Emiliya continued to improve her painting techniques with such masters as Scott Christensen, Jeremy Lipking, Pam Ingalls, Rob Liberace, Ned Mueller, Jim Lamb, John Bodicin, Ovanes Berberian, Kathryn Stats and Zhaoming Wu."I found a real joy in painting 'ala prima', directly from life, in the Russian Impressionistic tradition.The combination of color, light and brush strokes provided me with an intense sensation. Painting became both a profession and an obsession! The subtle effects of light upon a form or capturing the emotion of a very simple moment on canvas never fails to amaze me. Repin, Levitan, Sorolla, Serov and Korovin have been my biggest influences."Emiliya is affiliated with the Oil Painters of America, Portrait Society of America and the American Impressionist Society.She is represented by, Kronos Gallery and Vernissage Gallery at Seattle Design Center
