Yulia Berezhnaya

 I am 35, I live in Moscow, have 2 kids and I like to paint and to travel. 

I am traveling a lot from early childhood, was practically grown-up in tent, Karelia and North of Russia are my favorite places since that time. I have been to most European countries with kayak on rodeo-bus, in bicycle trips to Scandinavia and Crimea. I did several trips to India and Nepal, sometimes alone, did a snowboard free ride tours to Gulmarg (North India) and Krasnaya Polyana (Sochi Russia). 

I was born in Moscow, studied in Moscow State University and have PhD in Human and Animal Physiology. Almost 10 years I am working as nutritionist for big international companies, helping them to reduce sugar and salt, making more nutritious and functional foods and conduct clinical research, and I am especially interested in microbiome research.

Paint&Travel project was born when I first came to watercolor master-class to Anastasia Kustova, I was not painting since childhood. And I realized that I want to paint during my travel, not only photo beautiful places and people. I decided to combine painting with my annual visits to Kyrgyzstan.

\My husband Vasily Berezhnoi was born in Kyrgyzstan and works as a mountain guide there for more than 10 years, each summer he spends there with international groups on various trekking routes.

So, I proposed such trip idea to Anastasia and she agreed.

We made a very successful trip that time and now Paint&Travel is growing and we plan many exciting tours with excellent teachers.

I invite you to join us and enjoy unforgettable experience of painting with watercolor masters in group of friends being accompanied by reliable guides in very interesting routes! 

We are open for collaboration with guides and teachers and all traveling ideas are  very welcome.
