Russian American Artist in Maui

February 28, 2012

I love what I do. When I go to someone’s home or work space, I get a glimpse into some very, interesting peoples lives. Semyon Bilmes is one of those people. He is the artist/painter/illustrator  behind Atelier Maui, a private teaching studio offering 4 semesters of instruction on the beautiful north shore of Maui. Check out their website to learn more – it’s a lovely place to study, learn and create.  Semyon was formally trained in his native Russia; has lived in many places including New York and Ashland, Oregon. Now Maui is his home, along with his talented and beautiful wife, who designed and built the barn/studio,  and their grown children. (They designed and built them too!)

Semyon has a wonderful face to photograph and a contemplative disposition. He and his wife are the kind of people I’d like to sit down with, with a bottle of wine, and listen to the stories of their life’s experiences and their current observations about it all.
