I am Renata Ayutova and I'm from Baku, Azerbaijan. Despite the fact that I study Business Management and Marketing in the UK, I have always had a keen interest in art. During the school years I created many abstract water-colored paintings and cross-stitching on various topics. It seemed impossible for me that one day I could do realistic portraits. Somewhere two years ago I did my first black & white portrait of Salvador Dali. My family and friends could see the progress in portraiture and adviced me to create an art page on Instagram. The positive feedback stimulated me to start to do not only black and white but also colored portraits.
