Talented and well-known Fedoskino artist Goleneva Lubov was born in 1959 in Moscow, where she now resides. She has been studied at the Fedoskino Art School and graduated it in 1978. Her most influential teacher was N.V. Shagin. Her diploma work was a copy of Botticelli's painting entitled "The Three Graces."
Since she is considered a Fedoskino artist she paints with oils, and chooses to focus on painting portraits, although she can easily paint traditional Fedoskino themes and landscapes.
When it comes to the technical aspects of her painting she is very secretive and will not divulge what her most important element is in her works, her goals when beginning a work, and her personal techniques as regarding composition. The time frame to finish each work is different, and it depends on the difficulty of the subject and the price she will be paid for the work. She considers that quality and its development in her works through the years, is what separates her works from others. The thinness of the lines that she paint and final product are two of the most important aspects she likes to think about when painting.
Karl Bruilov and Konstantin Makovskii are two of her favorite artists from which she can draw inspiration when looking at their works.
She is divorced and has an adult son.
