I am an NYC illustrator. I was born in in Russia, St. Petersburg. The inspiration for my paintings comes from the things that surround me. Moving to NYC in 2016 has given me endless material for my art! I attempt to capture a fleeting moment or a feeling, and highlight the beauty and wonder in everyone I see.
My recent illustration clients include The New Yorker Magazine, The Washington Post, Athens Voice, The Highly, Copic Markers, RS Media, Well Arts Institute, Ruby Bay Fish Company, and more.
I also teach painting and drawing at Fairleigh Dickinson, The City College of New York, and various painting and drawing workshops around the city.
