Ageeva (maiden name) Irina Mikhaylovna was born in Russia, in the small city of Dyatkovo famous for a long period of time for its crystal workpieces. Felt propensity for painting in the early childhood and studied it do-it-yourself and in the lessons at children's art school as well. Parents didn't allow to leave and enter in prestigious high school, but already being adult (Usova, married name) graduated from arts and crafts department of pedagogical university of Bryansk. Worked as a designer in different spheres. Additional education - design courses at MGTU (Moscow State Technical University) named after Bauman. Now I am engaged in polygraphy design, web-design, painting and teaching whenever possible, but am an artist on calling. I live in Moscow with daughter. Participated in 2 painting exhibitions within the Christian theatrical festival in Moscow, in 2008 and 2011. The second was personal. Generally I have more than 100 painting many of which are owned in Russia, some in the USA, and now in Germany. All works - originals, author's copying in exceptional cases.
