Chronicles of adventures in art, design, culture & living.

About CulturePeel

CulturePeel is a place to share personal experiences with art with the aim of making cultural encounters of all kids more accessible and digestible.

A place to peel back the layers of the art world that may intimidate to reveal art and culture as it’s meant to be: not only available but meant for us all.

Thanks so much for visiting!



About me:

I was born in Moscow to two actors, and moved to Boston when I was ten. I went to college in Washington, DC, studying studio art, graphic design art history, and French (spending Junior year in Paris). I then embarked on a career in marketing, communications and copywriting and worked in a DC art gallery before moving to London for an MSc in Media & Communications. Post-grad school, I lived and worked in Copenhagen and New York before finally returning to Boston, where my roots are planted most deeply.

Today, I continue to write and help organizations with their communications strategies and branding. Since April 2017, I have worked with Matter & Light Fine Art in Boston on various outreach and cross-cultural projects, most recently a collaboration with Boston’s award-winning Company One Theater on “Really,” a play by Jackie Sibblies Drury. As Matter & Light transformed into a theater for Company One’s production, I co-curated the art exhibition to enhance the audience experience.

  1. Enjoying your blog, Art Wrap – you seem to be doing for Boston what essentially I’m interested in covering for Philadelphia. It’s been way too long since I’ve made the trek back to Boston to see art, but your insightful reviews make me feel as if I’m visiting in-person. Nice articles.

    1. Thanks so much for reading! It’s been a while since I’ve been to Philly, too, but when I visit I’ll be sure to check out your suggestions. I’ve been amazed by how much the art scene has been growing in Boston. The entire SoWa neighborhood didn’t exist when I was growing up, and now it’s an incredible place, especially on First Fridays. Hope you get to see it for yourself soon. Good luck with your blog!
