I live in Siberia, Russia and was born on the 5th March 1985. I grew up in Barbaul, Russia and I still live there to this day! My Dad has been my main influence ever since I was young, he’s a musician, and this made me want to peruse my career as a creative/artist. I did not go to university, what I have learnt I have taught myself. My personal inspiration is the world, I love it! It’s what drives me! My artwork is cute, soft, warm and gentle. The methods I use in my art work are modeling clay and Photoshop (not at the same time though!) I am a children’s book illustrator. My favorite piece of work is a tree with little birds sitting on it. I have one pet and he is a funny podgy cat I love him very much! If I weren’t an illustrator I would probably be a doctor. My favorite books/films are Harry Potter I love all those films. I really like all books by Jane Austen and I also really enjoyed reading the Lord of The Rings Trilogy. I love the city and countryside. I love to listen to the television while I work – never watch it though!
