Liubov (Luba) Kurchina

I am a traveler who is in love with art and fashion. 

I'm not a professional artist, but in Australia I discovered my passion for pastels.


Education

I was born in the ancient Russian city of Yaroslavl, which is more than 1000 years old in the family of a drama theater actor and a musician. All my childhood I was prepared to become a  professional musician, but I  always loved to draw and chose the profession of fashion designer. I graduated from the University of Economics and Service in Vladivostok (Russia) and worked as a designer in the clothing industry and in fashion houses. Then I authored an educational course "Fashion Design and Fashion Illustration" at a children's school of arts and worked there as a teacher for many years. Having lived most of my life in the Far East of Russia on the coast of the Sea of Japan near the Chinese border, I can call myself a person of Euro-Asian culture, because I know I love both. In 2014, after I moved in Australia I unexpectedly discovered pastel as an amazing and unlike anything else material. Now I call it "painting by my fingertips" or my "tactile" hobby. Every year I travel  around the world and it gives me inspiration for my creativity. My professional experience as a fashion designer came in handy in Australia and now I  am working as a stylist and fashion consultant in the retail industry.
