At what point in your life did you realize that you were an artist?

— At forty.

How did it happen?

—I started to feel my world, my light, at forty-three or forty-four years, somewhere like that. Although I have long been formally an artist. At twenty-eight I was already a member of the Union of Artists of the USSR. I had exhibitions in Paris, Moscow, Kyiv, and Lviv.
