Dina started her visual art training at an early age while living in Russia. As a teenager she joined the Analytical Art Studio, and still follows this school and artistic method after 30 years. In Canada, she continued her studies and graduated in Visual Arts from York University. She works as an illustrator and graphic designer and even a face/body painter, as well as a fine artist.
