Born in 1972 in Moscow, Russia, Olga Rybakova learned how to paint in an art studio as a childhood. Rybakova drew nature in the open air and drew animals at the zoo winning an art competition while at school. After studying at an institute, she began working in the computer graphics industry. For 11 years Rybakova made backgrounds for games, characters, websites, 3D and 2D animation, works on TV, advertising, supervised the production of animated films, and organized a computer graphics studio. Then Rybakova decided that she did everything that she desired in the field of CGI, and wanted to move on to something new. Rybakova wanted to paint in oil on canvas as did the old Dutch masters.

She started to study how to layer paint to add fullness and richness to her finished works and in 2000 did her first master copy. She then went on to learn how to add additional layers to her painting in a seven-layer painting technique which she still uses in her work today.
