Hello!
My name is Natalia, I am a painter, graphic designer and illustrator. I graduated B. Ioganson St. Petersburg State Academy Art Lyceum (School of Painting) in 2001. I then studied at Baltic University of Foreign Languages and Intercultural Communication’s (BUFLIC) at the Graphic Design department. After graduation I worked as a graphic designer in a design studio for several years before returning to my passion – drawing.
At the moment I work as a freelance designer and illustrator. Usually I work in mixed media. I draw by hand and also on the computer. I enjoy mixing different materials such as paper, cardboard, tempera, pencils, markers, ink, applications, and much more.
When I am not drawing I enjoy making art dolls and taking pictures. I also really like animation and dream about my own cartoon project.
In the future I would like to illustrate books and magazines, so they’ll become special and memorable. Children book illustration inspires me a lot too. The tactile contact with the paper or a page from the book seems to me as a very important part of our lives and I passionately want to participate in this process.
