Galina Alexeevna Zhiryakova

Born in 1948 in the city of Shilka in Chita region, now Galina lives in the village of Palekh in Ivanovo region.

In 1974 Zhiryakova graduated from the Palekh Art School where her teachers were V.I. Astahov, A.V. Kovalev, A.V. Borukov, and K.S. Semaikin.

Galina Alexeevna is a member of the Artists' Union of Russia.

She works at Palekh Workshops and at the Association of Palekh artists. Galina Alekseevna paints in traditions of Palekh lacquered miniature. She is interesting in depicting different subjects: historical, fabulous, fantastic, bible, philosophical. Her author works are submitted in museums of Moscow, Leningrad and Kostroma.

The artist uses any paints; everything depends on subjects of work. The amount of time, spending on painting of one casket, is dictated by complexity and size of work. And only after she has realized ideas and technical features she finishes work on a miniature. Zhiryakova, as most of artists, has personal receptions in painting. The author hopes, that admirers of her art will estimate at their true worth detailed painting, accuracy of drawing, forms of boxes, themes, colors and paints, as well as execution of her works.

In free time Galina Alexeevna likes to cultivate plants very much.

She wishes her admirers to learn about the art of lacquered miniature as much as possible.
