Dina Perejogina was born in St Petersburg in April 1976. Her mother is a talented artist and her father is responsible for restoring Russian Icon art along with other important state artefacts. Her love of wildlife and fine art has led her to develop a very detailed style of work and she has her father to thank for this gift. She will usually spend several weeks on a painting to ensure she captures the intricacy and essence of her subject. She always tries to create emotion in her paintings in the hope that the owners of her work will be moved to smile whenever they catch sight of it.
