My experience and qualifications are quite unique.
I am proud to have founded several businesses along with having the usual family care responsibilities one traditionally expects of a woman.
I am a journalist and an editor by education and have been in the art, publishing, and music industry for nearly 40 years. I use my knowledge to help my customers in their creative, marketing and publishing needs.
Striving Artists is my pride, joy, and challenge. My passion is to work with customers and see their satisfaction and happiness when they receive the framed product they had in mind.
During my college years I've received MS and PhD in Engineering, which allowed me to pursue a variety of careers, including design of electronic devices, owning a graphic design and printing company, and running an art gallery.
In 2006, I and my wife Marina acquired Striving Artists and expanded the business from dedicated framing to a full service fine art reproduction, printing, and custom framing establishment.
I have a life-long passion for the visual arts and especially for photography. I have been involved in digital imaging since 1990, and I have deep knowledge and skills in color management, offset printing, and fine art reproduction and publishing.
