Originally from Minsk, Belarus, I grew up in Los Angeles, California. I started drawing when I was five years old and haven't stopped since. I get my inspiration from fantasy art, old children book illustrators, Grimm fairy tales and real life situations and characters. Much of my work depicts fantasy and fairy tale related themes. Fantasy art for me has always been a way to escape into another realm where anything is possible. Each of my products is an expression of imagination, magic and wonder. I create handmade original artwork; mixed media collage paintings, art prints, pendants, books, greeting cards, postcards and other goodies. You can see more of my work on my website here.
