I am living my second life now. In my first very different life I worked as a textile designer at a soviet textile factory, under a different name, creating numerous carpet designs, fabric collections and embroidery patterns. Having completed a Master degree in textile technology, I then taught for 2 years at Vitebsk Technological University while I prepared for my PhD. My second life started when I moved to the US in 2002 , changed my name to JANE POPOVICH and earned a new degree in Mechanical Design. Since then, drawing has become my hobby and my passion.
I like working with different media: ink, pencil, watercolor, acrylic, digital. Commissions have included book illustrations, cards and creating a collection of Russian fairy tale drawings in ink. As an active member of the Pittsburgh Society of illustrators I have participated in several art shows with my pencil and ink drawings, nude sketches and abstract compositions. My website is under construction and relocation now, but my new page on the Pittsburgh society of professional illustrators website is active and refreshed with my recent work.
