My full Russian name is Dina Alexandrovna Perejogina. I was born in St Petersburg (previously known as Leningrad), Russia, in April 1976. My mother and father are both artists. I grew up with my mother and my brother in St Petersburg. My mother was a talented artist. Her prferred work style was that of the old masters, choosing to paint with oil on canvas. She lived in St Petersburg all her life. My father used to teach Art in Moscow and is still responsible for restoring Russian Icon art, along with other important state artefacts, including traditional Russian miniature lacquered boxes. My brother is a wonderful stonemason and artist working with semi-precious stone creating fireplaces, mosaic floors and sculptures.
I guess you could say that I am following in my parents' footsteps, as I graduated from the St Petersburg Art Restoration school and subsequently became interested in wildlife drawing and painting. In 1996 I moved to the UK and I am now a British Citizen, happily married with two lovely children.
My love of wildlife and fine art has led me to develop a very detailed style of work. I will usually spend several weeks on a painting to ensure I capture the intricacy and essence of my subject. I always endeavour to create emotion in my paintings, in the hope that the owners of my work will be moved to smile whenever they catch sight of it.
