My name is......
You know too much already.

My motto is: "Feci quod potui, faciant meliora potentes."

I am an artist-painter, living and working in New York City. I have also studied music, and I write it from time to time, semiprofessionally. I have played baroque lute since 1988.

I also occasionally undertake literary translation into English, and Italian (rarely, it is a little rusty), from either Russian of Ukrainian. These are the languages in which I can communicate. It's been almost 30 years since I left the old USSR, so I would not translate into either Russian or Ukrainian anymore, because my vocabulary is a bit "archaic".
I deliberately don't do original literature of any sort, because my sister does that extremely well.
I would add you to my friend-list if you have something interesting to say in your journal.
Vulgarity and Chauvinism of any sort will get you purged from it.

I am the keeper of 3 LJ communities: TORBAN_UA, LUTNIA_UA and BELLMAN_RU.
