I am a London based artist, illustrator and designer. 
I was born in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia and immigrated to the UK with my family at the age of eight. I have lived, studied and worked in London ever since. After leaving school, I studied
first at Byam Shaw School of Art, Central Saint Martins, gaining a diploma in Fine Art and then obtained a BA Honours Degree at Camberwell College of Arts in Illustration in 2010. Since then
I have sold and exhibited my range of contemporary Russian Dolls, illustrated book covers, made an app and worked as a graphic designer.
