Olga Bankston

   I was born in Ukraine and came to the US in 2005. 
   Art has always been an important part of my life. Since kindergarten I was involved in different art classes and programs.
    The biggest difference in my art journey was made by lessons taught by a Ukrainian sculpture artist about the fundamentals of drawing, the concept, representation, and importance of translating feelings and energy into art. 
   When I moved to US  I  begin to experiment with oils and different mediums. I especially like the oils because of the refined and finished look one could achieve in this medium. I had some plain air lessons, and different online tutorials to help me progress. I believe an artist never stops learning, and I’m always looking for some new things to learn and experiment with.
