Tatiana Yanovskaya-Sink

Tatiana Yanovskaya-Sink was born in Ukraine. The only child of working class parents, Tatiana was raised in a Soviet-style “doma” in Ukraine's largest industrial city just 550 miles south of Moscow. Throughout her school years she was exposed to the paintings of the greatest Russian and Ukrainian traditional artists. Although well cared for, Tatiana was a lonely child and relied on a vivid imagination to occupy and express her creativity through ballet dancing and play acting in schools and local theatre events. Unable to afford a piano Tatiana was discouraged from pursuing her first inclination toward the arts – music. In primary and secondary school she was, however, able to take basic courses in drawing and design in the local art schools and art associations. At the insistence of her parents, Tatiana earned her BS degree in mechanical engineering with the later obtained advanced degree as Patent Agent from Moscow Patent & Trademark Office. While working in the intellectual property field, she took art classes at the Kharkov Academy of Art (formerly the Institute of Industrial Art and Design) where she made friends with many talented artists with whom she studied and stays in touch until present. In 1990, after the breakup of the Soviet Union, Tatiana immigrated to the United States, found employment in Boston law offices as a patent paralegal. Throughout this period art remained Tatiana's first love and she continues to paint and study with the most prominent artists in America and participates in shows with various local artists. She is a member of Putney Painters Group which paints with the great masters Richard Schmid and Nancy Guzik. Tatiana's love of Russian traditional painting is everlasting. A special place in her heart belongs to the superb works of Russian artist. She admires the work on I. Kramskoy, Vrubel, Korovin, Repin, Serov, Nicolai Fechin and many other Great Russian painters. She has studied with Dan Gerhartz, Carolyn Anderson, Mark Daily, Scott Burdick, Richard Schmid, Nancy Guzik, Susan Lyon, John Budicin, Kevin McPherson, Mark Daley, Jove Wang, Tim Lawson, Ned Jacob, Rose Frantzen and other great masters. She likes to visit museums to see the work of such masters like Holbein, Hals, Vermeer, Sorolla, Anders Zorn, Denise Bunker, Hale, Leonardo Da Vinci, Norman Rockwell, Adrew Lumis, Thayer, Dennis Miller Bunker, Robert Henri and many others of the world’s greatest masters. She is an honorable member of the Medici group of Museum of Fine Arts to sell her paintings to donate to the MFA Scholarship Fund.
