Irina graduated from Chernivtsi State University, Chernivtsi, Ukraine with a Bachelor (Honors) Degree in Philology, the study of languages. She has business and art education from Seneca College, George Brown College, Stefan Galvanek Fine Art School and Studio and Haliburton School of the Arts, all in Canada.
Irina has been displaying her art in galleries in Canada since 2013 including Mill Pond Gallery in Richmond, Ontario; Gallery 260; Aurora Town Hall in Aurora Ontario; Newmarket Studio Tour.
Inna Nagaytseva has always loved to draw but started to seriously engage in this activity in 2017. After trying various materials such as acrylic, ink, markers, she was presented with an old set of the Neva palette of 24 colours and decided to try watercolour. After that, her life turned upside down and she fell in love with this material and decided to conquer it in her favourite ways.
After many lessons and lots of trial and error she finally tamed this complex material and began to find herway in the watercolour world, painting different pictures from flowers to portraits. Somehow her pictures became cold and Northern.
In Inna’s watercolors she attempts to convey the power and beauty of the most picturesque places she knows. They symbolize silence and tranquillity and they move consciousness to where the soul connects with nature, which for her, as an artist, is a very important factor in the development of a person.
Inna’s paintings are in private collections in the USA, Mexico, Iceland, Germany, Canada, South Korea, Poland, Vietnam, Spain, France, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary, UK, Ireland, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland, Lithuania and Finland. She is a Silver Brush Brand Ambassador and has participated in various international exhibitions and biennials such as:
Your Identity Through Watercolor, IWS Palace Lucija, Poland, 2020 20th International Watercolor Exhibition, online, Japan, 2020
Women In Watercolor, online, USA, 2020
