Synopsis:

Varvara Harmon was born and raised in Volzshk, Russia. She began painting in her childhood and was a student at the Volzshk Art School, where she graduated with a Diploma in Art Studies. While in Russia, Varvara participated in many regional art exhibitions and was the first artist ever to put on a solo exhibition at the Museum of V. E. Lenin in the City of Kazan, Russia. Varvara immigrated to the United States in 2001 and moved to Maine. The majority of Varvara’s works are done with oil; however, she also works in acrylic, watercolor, and pencil. Although landscapes are her favorite subject, Varvara paints still lifes and portraits.
