I am an illustrator based in Brooklyn, New York. As my name might give away, I was originally born in Russia and lived there for the first eight years of my life. After moving to the US, my family and I lived in Pennington, NJ before I went off to college at Pratt Institute.

Illustration for me has always been about communicating a story or an idea. I was never very process oriented or cared so much about what medium I'm doing something in, just what was available and easiest to get my ideas out. Throughout school I tried almost every medium under the sun, and digital painting, for me, was something that gave me the freedom to fail, and to try again. I started drawing digitally back in middle school, but it was never regarded by my teachers as a valid artistic medium. That mindset persisted into college, and it wasn't until senior year that I completely switched over.

My hobbies include origami, drinking tea, camping, and traveling. I like meeting new people and sharing ideas and experiences. I try to observe as much as I can from life around me and incorporate it into my illustration. Read Less
