ABOUT

I am a visual artist based in Freiburg, Germany. I specialize in illustration. I am from Ukraine and I studied graphic design at the Transсarpathian Art Institute.

I am always open to new opportunities and ready to share my experience, so please feel free to contact me at



Illustration helps me find my inner child, whereas art helps me understand what stands in the way of this search.


In my work, I embrace various media from editorial illustration and posters to book design, from monumental graphics to art installations.
I also write books for children.
Discovering new art techniques is my passion.
