Tatyana Yushmanova lives and works in Moscow, but she looks for inspiration in the place where she had spent her childhood - a remote village in the Yaroslavl Region. Notwithstanding that she was born in the family where everybody
were mathematicians and physicists, she graduated from the Moscow Academic School of Art and the Russian Academy of Painting, Sculpture and Architecture. Mainly she paints landscapes of Russian nature and portraits.
Incessant rains, crazy winds of Kamchatka, sleeping in damp sleeping bags, gnats and wool lice are inevitable companions of people working in the Kronotsky natural reserve. But there is the other side in their work: they see the
most beautiful sunsets and daybreaks, their paths go along picturesque passes and behind scenic waterfalls where people usually don't get. They are often the witnesses of the most private moments of wild nature.
