Ferens Shhikunova Zhana Valjerevna was born in a hot climate in the town of Frunze, located in Kyrgyzstan on November 13, 1967.
Her Russian parents' roots go as far as Siberia. Shortly after Zhanna's birth, the young family returns to the Novosibirsk region, the city of Taguchin. However, when Zhanna is 5 years old, her father suddenly dies. The mother decides to move with her daughter and leaves for Central Asia, this time to Dushanbe in Tajikistan.
Zhanna falls in love with Asian nature, mountain rivers and high rocks, and also begins to paint. As she was very often ill as a small child, she spent a lot of time in bed, where she had fun painting with crayons. In her childhood, already in the 5th grade, it was seen that the sport that heals the body and painting that heals the spirit will become an integral part of her life.
At the age of 15, in 1982, he entered the Olimov Art School in Dushanbe. At that time, painting had already become her everyday joy, and in 1986, when she finished school, she received the title of freelance artist. Of course, he continues to devote himself to his second love, sports, and becomes the republic's champion in cycling.
Her Asian climate benefits her not only artistically but also in terms of health, and she leaves to study at the Repina Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg (then Leningrad), where she meets her future husband Vladislav.
