Artist, writer. I believe in a power of a soul. I believe, that everything around us is alive. Sometimes I look at people, animals or things and I see with the eyes of my soul something absolutely different from what our physical eyes can see. We all are energy. We all are connected. And I know it. That is how I create my paintings or write my stories. Through and by means of my feelings. I believe, that we choose who we are and what we want to be in life, which quolity of life we want to have. In this Universe there are so many directions to choose from. If you feel bad turn around, look at something nice (it's always possible to find), switch the way of your thinking. And this very moment you will make a desision to be happier. It will be your silent (but very loud!) statement, that you're ready for the journey. And as a result, you will go the direction of your happiness instead of keeping to sink in this darkness. Go toward the light of your dream, toward the light of your love. Go toward the light of your soul and your passion. Go inside of yourself. Find yourself there, look into your own eyes and embrace who you are. Be yourself. Be honest. Always, always be honest and moral. Be brave. Be happy. And keep going. Love, Masha KS


It’s been a while since my last post. It doesn’t mean I quit paintings. It only means that I was busy with something else. I and my dear husband moved to California, closer to warmth and ocean 🙂 Big open waters make me happy! 

And yes, here you can see two of my new works.



Sometimes you don’t sleep and don’t eat. You just forget about these things. All you remember is your special connection with this Universe, something like umbilical cord. And you receive colors and visions insted of food via this umbilical cord. Or music. Or words. Or idea. Feeling. Love. It’s because you’re an Artist. So don’t worry. After this life we will have chance to sleep in 😉 

But still try to take care of your mind and body. Find time to rest. 

Love, Masha


Some inspiration to you from me


How are you doing today?

Hello my friends! How are you doing today? Hope you were able to find inspiration in simple things. As for me, I am still inspired by colors, music, yoga, thoughtful people, nature, my dear cats, life itself. I don’t know what are you going through right now and what’s on your mind, but I want to tell you something. No matter what, no matter how bad things can seem sometimes and no matter how bad we can feel sometimes without or with reasons – keep going. Send all the blessings your own way and keep going. Everything will work out, and one day you will understand what for you needed all those troubles/lessons. Nothing is wasted, time is a teacher.

Love, Masha
