Lidia Churakova grew up in Moscow, Russia in a family of artists and scientists. As a child, she attended an art studio, but later devoted most of her time to the study of the natural world. In 2012, she graduated from the NC State University with a Bachelor degree in Art and Design. Since then, she has been working as a freelance graphic designer, and continued to pursue her passion for painting in the free time. Her work has been displayed on the walls of various businesses in the area, at the festivals, and on several occasions in the Visual Art Exchange gallery. Starting February 2017 she has taken on residence in the Carter Building, Studio #22 and has committed herself to pursue a full time career in art.
