Hello. my name is Ksenia. =^x^= I was born in Russia, Moscow. When I was 14 my family moved to Israel. Curently I live in Tel Aviv area. I am a painter / IT operator. I have BFA in arts from Bazalel Academy of Art and Design. I love painting and drawing a lot, but I love my job too. Once I thought computors and art have nothing in common. Now I know it's not true.
I have very eclectic taste... I enjoy contemporary art and character design. When I'm traveling aboard I will go to at least 10-15 galleries and all of the museums. I'm a big fashion geek... I'm crasy about shoes! I love all kind of music: pop, j-pop, j-rock, indie, folk, goth and metal. All together! but not classics... Currently most played: The Pierces Discography, Last Exile OST and Neon Bunny - Happy Ending.
I love to cook! I like Japanese, Chines, Indian, Mexican and French foods. ( I'm not so much into baking thougth) I could live on Eggs and Sushi... I love Strawberries and drink my Tea with Milk. My latest food-addiction is raw Oysters, delicious little things!
I read mostly fantasy books and watch SiFi movies and tv shows. (I almost never watch dramas, but I do like good funny comedies and Kdramas are my guilty pleasure). Currently I read American Gods/Orlando and watch 2 Broke Girls, New Girl, Hart of Dixie, Cougar Town, Grimm and Person of Interest, Ergo Proxy - re-watch. Last movie I really liked: Oblivion.
I love opera and ballet.
I go to Zoos a lot! I love pandas and lemurs :)
Kawaii- is state of mind! I adore Japanese street fashion and I'm in love with Japanese products and sweets.
I have a cat - a black cat, her name is Kitty. She is the Master of our home! =^x^=
I like anime and cosplay; once a year for Purim I make one adorable character, one I can relate to. This year (well, THIS year it was NOT adorable, not adorable at all) I cosplayed Silent Hill Nurse. ( Past ones : Nadia from First Squad, Pino from Ergo Proxy, Konata Izumi from Lucky Star, Dejiko from Di Gi Charat, Chii from Chobits, Delirium from Sandman)
I'm addicted to Poupeegirl and Flickr...
By the way - not rating someones effort or not saying simple "Thank you" is just RUDE! (I checked it takes only 5 sec to type 8 letters, but it feels so nice)
The Ninth Gate, Pillow Book, Lost in Translation and Marie Antoinette are my All Times Favorites!
Those 4 movies represent who I'm as a person... :)
I also like Push, In Time, Gattaca, Possession, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Desperately Seeking Susan, Everything Is Illuminated, Julie & Julia, The Tourist, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Nightmare before Christmas and Silver Linings Playbook.
I love few Japanese movies: Kamikaze Girls, Sakuran, Linda Linda Linda and the 3rd Ringu.
