I live in California although for the major part of my life I used to live in Moscow, Russia.
My interests are fine arts and opera, but also finding interesting information about the routine parts of our life. That is why I write articles for Examiner.com where there is a possibility to express my passion about interior design, museums, painting, and other interests.
My kids are grown up; and now I am devoted to raise a 12 weeks old adopted kitten, Mabel. She is smart, adorable and brings required hassles to my life.
