This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from A. Ron Evangelista:

Galina Brodskaya (Now Evangelista) was born and raised in Leningrad (Now St. Petersburg) Russia in 1941. When she was 5 years old, she was impressed how her Father could draw simple things like a tree, although he was not an
artist. In school where she was drawing all the time, copying pictures and
photographs, she was mentored by some of her early year teachers. Soon she realized how much she loved to do real life portraits of people, dreaming of the mysteries of the "Old Masters".

To fulfill her practical aspirations, she attended Art College in Russia and
became an advertising designer. She later migrated to New York and attended the Parsons School of Design and the School of Visual Art. She continued her graphic art background for an additional seventeen years in New York and Los Angeles, with all three locations adding inspiration to her art. Although she earned a good living at Graphic Design, she wanted desperately to paint.

She quit her career after 27 years to attend the Mission Renaissance Fine
Art School, and started to paint. The founder commented that she was a
"Diamond in the Rough," and he wanted to see her become polished. The
spectrum of bright colors and realistic life scenes have become her
signature.

She kneels in front of Leonardo Da Vinci, adores Botticelli, Rembrandt and
Titian but her heart belongs to Bouguereau, Leighton, Alma-Tadema and other artists of the Renaissance and Victorian era. When she completes a picture, she detaches herself from it and looks forward to starting anew. Her best masterpiece is still ahead.
