Hi, my name is Mila! I have been creating beautiful portraits on canvas for 7 years, and now I will tell you my story of success.
I believe that my history will inspire other painters and people to expand their consciousness and change the way they understand art.
In general, art is considered various branches of creative activity, such as painting, music, literature, and dance.
Art used to be my hobby, but each painter knows how expensive the materials for drawing and painting are. Fortunately, I could set up a business without giving up my hobby.
This story began 7 years ago in Vladivostok when I, being a law student of a Saint-Petersburg University of Humanities and Social Sciences, understood that I didn’t want to be a legal consultant or lawyer — as people of such professions are always overloaded. They are so busy that they can hardly find any spare time for hobbies and family.
Once in 2013, I was invited to a B-day party of my wealthy classmate, but I was really out of cash. The only chance to impress him was the hand-made present.
I was lucky to have everything I needed for painting at home. In a couple of days, I painted a funny portrait on canvas from my friend’s photo, and all guests at the party were surprised to know that I had created it myself.
During the next 2 months, some friends asked me to paint some portraits for their families and friends for Birthdays, weddings, anniversaries and other special occasions. Later I began to send portraits to my friends from different countries.
Actually, I was surprised, how fast and well-organized our delivery companies are. At that moment, I understood that I COULD create such portraits.
Next month, I presented the second portrait to a friend of mine who was constantly visiting many surgeons to change her appearance, which she actually hated. I was trying to convince her that she was as pretty as Angelina Jolie, but words didn’t seem to mean anything to her. Nevertheless, she was greatly impressed by the woman looking at her from the portrait.
She was wearing a bright red dress, and all people around were really staring at her noble gait and eye-taking face. A few minutes later, she realised that she was looking at the spectaculars from the picture. It was her face, but the clothes were slightly different from her daily clothes.
That day she visited a famous designer and began looking so cool that she understood — the main thing is to like everything in yourself and sometimes improve it instead of changing something that seems to be unacceptable at a first glance.

At that moment, I understood that I SHOULD create portraits.
Suddenly, I came up with the idea that I could send portraits to my nearest and dearest and other people.
Step by step, I was enlarging the sales scales, but I had a lot of potential clients who needed the portraits in a short period. I really wanted to make happy as many people as possible.
One day I decided to draw a picture on a digital tablet. I sent it later to my friend in Brazil, who could print the image in a day and present it to his sister’s wedding.
Since then, I began painting digital pictures that I later transferred to canvas. It was much easier to travel with a light tablet and create fabulous portraits, enjoying picturesque landscapes around me.
One year later, I had too many orders from more than 20 countries, which is why I offered my classmates from a drawing school to join my team.
In 2015 I rented an office and bought printing appliances to produce top-quality canvas myself. I have a multinational team of 30 designers who paint your beautiful pictures from 10 different countries.
Moreover, 6 managers in my office in Saint Petersburg help me with pictures’ production and packing. I am really thankful for the city of my dreams — Saint Petersburg, which is known to be the cultural capital of Russia. It was Saint Petersburg and its old buildings with stunning curved windows.
