Usually when people hear my name, they ask me «Alina, means «Adt» ? A short from «advertising»?»
Therefore, I decided to begin with putting some clarity into this common question.
ADT — is just a German family name. My ancestors, artists & sculptors of public monuments, were Deutch colonists invited to work in St Petersburg in the middle of 19 century. As the most part of Adt's who mostly worked in the arts, there is nothing surprising in the fact that I'm working in the same field.
Short Bio: Born and grew up in St. Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Started to draw at the age of 5 with some help of the private Art tutor and later graduated from the Schools of Art such as Art School of Iconography and Minor Academy of Arts. In addition completed the Bachelor degree in Performing Arts in St.Petersburg State University and Bard College (New York)
with graduation work "the Power of Colour".
My real passion is in exploring the sacred gift of Life and the notion of Beauty, as without it Life doesn't make any sense. Riddles of the Universe, planet Earth, and eminent people inspires me. The paintings are born from my love for the Sun, my visions, travells, emotions and imagery — in one word, Art is my way of serving.
Education: Bard College, New York

The Sangreal is another name for the Holy Grail, a legendary sacred vessel associated with divine revelation. According to legend, it has special powers, and is designed to provide happiness, eternal youth and food in infinite abundance.
Grail is a mere sideshow: they say the Holy Grail is not a
physical chalice, but a woman, namely Mary Magdalene, who carried the bloodline of Christ and literally means "royal blood".
Anyway for me it is a sacret better world lies in harmony and love between man and woman.
