ARINA- I’m a vintage loving girl from a small village in far away Russia. My family and I moved to sunny OC when I was 19. Even after many years of living here I sometimes slip some of my version of English into what I say as I am still getting the hang of spoken American culture.
My inspiration hold strong roots in the visual arts as I have found myself jumping from art school to art school learning the basics of drawing, painting, and creating, which were large parts of my childhood until I got my very first film camera! I think it was the best present ever, besides my engagement ring! Besides photography I have a profound love for God, my fiance, my family, friends, my dog Denya, anything vintage-especially cameras, white chocolate mocco, warm socks, miniature Christmas villages, drive in movie theaters, road trips, cotton candy, frogs, laughing, dreaming big, enjoying life and many more things that make me who I am.
