Galina Richardson

I’m a portrait artist in Ventura, California.
I was born in Russia, Western Siberia.
Here in California, I spent a decade working as a graphic designer for local businesses, and another decade as a Russian translator for the FBI in Los Angeles.
I’ve been a full-time artist 7 years, focusing on portraiture and working in watercolor. What I love about watercolor is it’s fluid, spontaneous nature.
I love painting people. To me, it’s the most intriguing and rewarding experience.
When I look for a model/muse for my portrait, I look for something that connects me to that person. As I paint, I try to interpret what I think my muse is feeling.
