Larisa Sved’s paintings are deeply personal and employ realist technique that occasionally moves towards abstraction. As a self-taught artist, she is inspired by the natural surroundings of Canada and the Cayman Islands with her detailed depictions of flora created to convey messages of peace, harmony, and joy. She truly enjoys painting and creating different pieces of art throughout her life, expressing herself by working with acrylic on canvas, wood, rocks. Flowers and tropical birds, sea turtles and fish in her paintings are brought to life. When she applies the paint on canvas, it feels magical, it transforms paint and canvas into something that no one else had done. It is not just a painting; she is painting from her heart. If the work catches someone's eye, it feels like she has accomplished something. Sved likes to take part in the exhibitions, enjoys painting for her family and friends, donate her work to the local charities.
