I am a London-based artist specialising in children's book and app illustration. Born in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia I came to the UK at the age of eight and have lived here ever since. I studied first at Byam Shaw School of Art, Central Saint Martins and then at Camberwell College of Arts. My clients have included Hopscotch books, Romanian publisher Editura Humanitas and private buyers of my limited edition contemporary Russian Dolls which I sell through Eyestorm gallery. Recently I have also created an educational app for children in collaboration with a programmer and 'Theasaurus' is now available for mobile from all major app stores. I work mainly in the mediums of coloured pencils, pen and watercolours and I have recently started experimenting with recreating these techniques digitally. I also enjoy printmaking, primarily etching, lithography and lino-cut.
