Hello, welcome to Inside Art with Dima.

Dima is short for "Jim" in Russian and is now my signature on all artworks. While my studio is in Costa Blanca Spain I can still provide artworks globally.

I enjoy working in a broad range of mediums and topics and thrive on challenges. Topics can be anything from portraits of people or pets, to places and landscapes, abstracts or  surreal! 

I'm often approached to create pictures from old photos or prints, mobile phone or digital images of variable quality.

What can I do for you?

Portraits from photos

I draw and paint portraits based on photos of any kind. Often from black and white or sepia prints but more now from digial cameras, mobile phones, or social media,

Contemporary art

Give me a theme or a genre. I'll prepare a proposal with draft images for discussion prior to any commitment.

Teaching support

I teach drawing and painting courses. I provide tutorial support to local artist groups. You can find my free classes at https://www.drawtopaint.com
