Lakes and Fells by Tetiana Scott


Visit Florence Arts Centre this winter to see landscapes and studies by local artist Tetiana Scott.
Tetiana writes:
I was born in the Ukraine but spent most of my youth in the Soviet Union. It was a complicated time in my life. I started to study art in a special College of Art but I was unable to complete it because of the unpredictable circumstances at that time in Russia so I decided to continue my education on a course for designers.
After this I started working as an artist for the local community party organisation. My work involved the creation of large public works of arts on boards for decorating buildings and billboards.

These works were not aesthetic pieces for pleasant decoration but used for propaganda and the dissemination of the communist ideals. It was a demand of the Russian government. Under the Soviet regime all kinds of art was used only for propagation of communistic ideas. It is quite a complicated thing for people to understand especially for those who had not lived through those times in that country.
I would have liked to have remained an artist but, in the end, I left this job to find work elsewhere, because it was so unpleasant for me to be involved in the government propaganda machine.
But life moves on. A few years ago I met a man from Cumbria. In time we married and I left my old home in Odessa to make a new life in West Cumbria. This is a beautiful little corner of the world. From the first time I set eyes upon it I was completely fascinated with the wonderful landscapes of West Cumbria and started to paint them because I still have the artist in me and love to paint.
The freedom to portray my own ideas and feelings on canvas and share it with others is a wonderful thing and it makes me happy to do this. I hope you enjoy my version of this beautiful scenery.
