Hello, my name is Irina Kiselev-Kononenko. I am an Artist in every aspect of my life. Welcome to my online residence, where I will share my story as a national level figure competitor, fitness model, graphic designer and makeup artist. You can check out my work, read more about me, or drop me a virtual line.
I was born October 3rd 1977 in Moscow, Russia. When my family first came to visit US I was about 14 years old, and lived between two countries ever since.
As a child growing up in Moscow, I was always fascinated with the human body, its grace and beauty - its form and movement.
I can still remember my first Muscle&Fitness magazine, and how inspired I was by these amazing athletes. That is where my dream of fitness has started. It was in 2008 that I made a decision to compete in a local Colorado show, that's where I met Heather Mae French (now Sosias) for the first time. She is my inspiration, my trainer and close friend. I am very happy and thankful for all the great chances that life has given me.
In 2009 we began my transformation and in July 2009 I won my class in Colorado State Championship!
Competing in this sport has proved to be a rewarding and a constant challenge, a battle
of will. God blessed each of us with the power to control our bodies and health, to create and transform ourselves. My body is my own art project, my goal is to create, motivate and inspire other to see the beauty in ourselves, to be happy.
