Larisa Demidova



I graduated from the Krasnodar State University in Russia as a Biologist. For about 25 years my interest in natural biology was untouched due to my commitments to support the family who owned a furniture making business.

Only 4 years ago my daughter subscribed me to some online courses of Alexander Viazmensky “Botanical Painting – Mushrooms”, that was the first time I took a brush in my hand. Since then I’ve discovered another opportunity to enrich my studies as a biologist – by capturing the beauty of the natural world.

Now I am a member of the SBA and making paintings for exhibitions organised by the society. I am extremely glad to participate in projects which are aiming to popularise the preservation of nature.
