Deva was born and grew up in Saint Petersburg, Russia, a beautiful city filled with art and dreams. Deva says it got in her bones; she has been painting on and off most of her life. Another love of hers is nature, and of course the most beautiful nature is here in New Zealand. Always interested to try new things, once Deva attended sculpture, and then mosaic, workshops she has found since then she cannot stop.
Her garden is filling up with her work, and if you wish to visit, please phone Deva to make a time to call on her.
Deva's studio is in the Absurdistan community in Kaiwaka, overlooking the Kaipara Harbour.
