My dear friends, welcome to my world of Arts and Travel!
My name is Valentina. I am a founder of VS Private Tours in Muscat and work as a professional travel guide here in The Sultanate of Oman.
Oman is my home since 2012 and I fell in love with this amazing country once I put my foot on its land. Beautiful mountains, dramatic wadis, canyons, desert, sea and sands, lots of culture and heritage.
And the most important and valuable treasures are people with their great hospitality.

Graduated from Moscow aviation university and working as an instructor-pilot of glider sports in my past, I like an adventure. and have many interests: reading books, web design, listening and playing music, enjoying a round of golf when possible, taking care of my plants and giving a company to my lovely cats.
The Covid-19 pandemia changed the life of many people in our planet, including me. Trying to find the way to survive in this country while the tourism industry was almost dead, I started drawing and even tried to write. As a result, my great hobby is painting now.
Pastel and Oil are my favorite materials. I am very much appreciated to the possibility of online drawing lessons. It helped me to find my way in arts and make a choice. I try my best to learn from the best Masters like J. Dubinina and S. Brusilov from Russia. They both are my favorite online teachers.
I really want to grow in arts, become a great artist and happy to share my artist's skills with you.
Another hobby of mine is writing books for children. I imagine, write and illustrate it by myself. Thanks to the artist's skills! You can find two of my books with fairy tales in the "My books" section here. I am a student of online Academy for children's writers. So, another stories are on their way!
