BIO OF 1ST PLACE WINNER OLGA CREE: “I was born in a small town in Russia. I graduated from school and music college. At the age of 18, I dreamed of becoming a lawyer, moved to a big city and graduated from the State Law University. Despite a law degree, I was always attracted to creativity and painting. I did not even dream of becoming an artist, but I continued to paint from an early age. I never studied drawing, imagine? But I practiced every day painted portraits of people who inspire me. Since I liked portraits, I photographed a lot and opened my own photo studio. I became a photo artist. I took pictures of people and then painted them. Once I shared my artwork on social networks and received an order. So I realized that art is not just a dream, it is my future. At that time, I also worked as a commercial director of branded clothing boutiques. It was an amazing job. But I decided to quit my job, sell photo studio and devote all my time to painting. Now painting is my main occupation. I sell works to collectors and collaborate with various companies to create drawings for their product. I believe that AMERICAN ART AWARDS is a new stage in my creativity and development. Many thanks for this opportunity.” https://www.instagram.com/olgacree/
