The Talent Marina Fedotova Biography

Marina Fedotova is a children’s illustrator from Moscow, designing children’s picture books, working freelance and via her Advocate Art Illustration agency in the UK.

Marina Fedotova was born in Moscow City, where she is still living and working today as a professional children’s illustrator. She describes her art as “full of kindness and witty humour”. Marina was classically trained as a watercolourist, she loves adding minute details to her freelance picture book designs and greetings cards, such as the knit on a woollen scarf or a fluttering butterfly over head. She is inspired by the puppeteers who make their own dolls and perform locally to her- many of whom are her friends, she, like them, likes to bring her creations to life.
