Artists don’t need math or do they?

Throughout my life, I keep hearing that artists don’t need math. This is a very narrow-minded view of both the arts and career management. Geometry is an important part of fine arts, but today I want to focus on a simpler following point. Artists need to be able to manage their finances and do it…

I have several Instagram accounts, and they’re all linked to a single main account. Recently, I was switching between my accounts and I got a weird error.

Oksana Ossipov, portrait

Hello, and thank you for visiting my website! My name is Oksana Ossipov, and I’m a visual artist and photographer. I currently reside in the area of Dallas, Texas. My formal education includes a BFA in Digital Media Art from San Jose State University. After moving to Texas, I started to focus on my fine art skills and figurative art in particular. I studied for 5 years under Michael Mentler at the Society of Figurative Arts. Through my life, I’ve also acquired a multitude of skills that include web development, sculpting, photography, art studio and business management, and baking awesome blueberry scones!

I’ve been trying to fully devote myself to the art over the past few years. I’m trying to learn and practice as much as I can. However, the workshop, class, and art supply costs present a certain financial challenge. If you like my work and want to support me, I would truly appreciate it! I have a shop full of artworks and creations, but even just sharing my art or social media pages would help a lot. Thank you so much!
