Anastasia Arseneva - an artistic journey as it unfolds...

My name is Anastasia Arseneva , and I was born in a small town in Russia.  After getting my Bachelors Degree Major in Economy of China at Far Eastern Federal University in Vladivostok, I was granted a Chinese government scholarship for studying for my Master’s Degree in Southern China University of Technology, in China where I was the only foreign student among my Chinese classmates - I studied Logistics engineering and management  , it was a lot of fun, I must tell you!  

Originally, I had no plans of moving anywhere far from my hometown, much less living abroad, but I believe, the Universe has some special plans designed for each of us, so I followed my heart; living, studying and working as an international trade specialist for many years in China , traveling all around the World taught me so many lessons and gave me so many life experiences, which I will forever be grateful for. I saw poverty and happiness, I saw wealth and loneliness. I was fortunate to meet so many amazing people who led me to my spiritual path. Plus, being so close to India, Nepal, Thailand , Malaysia, traveling to the UAE and other places completely expanded my mind. 

I have always been a very intuitive and creative person, played piano , read tons of books, been drawing since an early age and have always been an extremely responsible student, as it's pretty normal for people born in USSR, in my opinion.  I always had a passion for learning new skills, getting new data, new knowledge and information about any subject, I've always wanted to keep evolving and everything in life, life itself seemed so interesting, but at some point I ask myself a question: why am I  here? what is the purpose?  So, I started to search for a deeper meaning to life and my true passion. I was 25,  I felt lost, my work ceased bringing me much joy and meaning since I reached a plateau , and suddenly my life shifted, and I moved to Los Angeles, where I slowly with the passing time - discovered my other gift - painting , which became my true passion

For the past couple years, I have been  exploring different styles and subjects in painting, learning different  mediums and techniques, trying to listen to my heart and see what I like the most. It makes me extremely happy to learn something new, this is why you can see such a diverse variety of my painting subjects. I admire sports,  good wine, history, spirituality ,  people’s stories, I love make people happy with my art. 

Goodkarmavibes.com is born out of a combination of my education,   life experience , spiritual growth and deep love towards art , music, beauty and life overall, which allows my perspective as an artist to remain traditional yet contemporary. I'm excited to see how this love towards art unfolds and where this passion takes me ...
