Natalaya Romanovsky

Natalya Romanovsky grew up in Moldova, a country located between the Ukraine and Romania. As a child she knew she would be an artist, her talent was noticed by her teacher who told her mother, Give her brushes and paint and the child will know what to do.

Romanovsky has a constant childhood memory sometimes more like a dream, of a chance encounter that opened a door and let art into her life. It was a meeting with an old man, who had a reputation for being lost as a child and then found in a city far way. To Romanovsky it was as if the man, Jorg Jonkof, passed something to her and from that point on she was destined to be an artist.

Romanovsky studied at Chisinau Art College, earning a degree in graphic design. She enjoyed art school and entered her field upon graduation working for a popular magazine. At the same time she contributed to a series of childrens publications. However her heart was in painting, and despite a few shows around the city she became frustrated with the local art market.

In 1993 Romanovsky immigrated to the US, joining her mother in Cleveland. Moving to America opened a whole new door for the curious and energetic artist. She found some initial support from a local gallery and began painting with a new enthusiasm.

Working as much from home as at her studio space Romanovsky feels a constant creative urge. She has developed a love for Americas open roads and loves cruising along Ohios highways and byways. She dreams of one day learning to fly a plane, to be able to speed around in the sky as well.

Romanovskys work is well collected and can be seen in galleries throughout Canada and the USA.
