Lyudmila Skorodinskaya was born in Siberia. She graduated from Tomsk State University, where she later taught pedagogy and psychology. At the same time, she worked as the principal of the University’s elementary school, posing art as one of the main subjects. After coming to the US in 2003, she switched from teaching to learning, by enrolling in the art classes taught by the artist Elizabeth Ross. As an artist, Ludmila has been noticed at the very beginning of her career. 6 Months after her relocation to the US, her artworks were exhibited at the Central Piedmont Community College and Queens Gallery in Charlotte, NC. In December of 2004, Ludmila’s painting “The portrait of Lisa” wins the first prize during the judged art show at Queens Gallery in Charlotte, NC. Among her artworks, are landscapes, still life, icons - yet especially prevalent are the portraits - lively and expressional. Fifteen of her paintings are currently in private collections, and “reside” in different cities throughout the US- Washington D.C., Honolulu, Charlotte…
Lyudmila Skorodinskaya is continuing her education at Central Piedmont Community College. Her mentor Elizabeth Ross says about her:
“It seems to me that Ludmila Skorodinskaya is what I believe to be the epitome of a Russian artist. Her work is full of passion: passion for the subjects that she paints, passion for the process of painting, and passion for the color she uses. Although seemingly simple, every painting has layers upon layers of paint applied with forceful energy. Due to this process the images take on a glow from within. Particularly in the portraits, whose subjects often look directly at the observer, there is an other worldly quality, the expression of soul, an essence of being”.
Lyudmila Skorodinskaya lives in Charlotte, NC with her husband and her dog, Chap, close to her daughter and three grandchildren.
