How long have you been illustrating and what made you start?
I have been drawing since childhood – for as long as I can remember. Nature gave me such a divine gift, for which I am very grateful. Now I am a professional artist – I graduated from two art universities with honours.
Where do you get your inspiration?
Inspiration is everywhere, even in ordinary life! If you look closely – the whole world, people, animals. There is beauty everywhere!
Where is your favourite place to illustrate?
I draw at home using pencils and a Wacom graphics tablet.
What are your illustrating/colouring material essentials?
For illustrations I use watercolour, gouache and acrylic.
What’s the piece of work that you’re most proud of or enjoyed doing the most?
I love all my work! But I especially love the illustrations I did of the fairy tale Thumbelina.
