I am a Manchester based illustrator interested in children’s book illustration. I like to research and work on different folk tale, fairy tale and mythology based narratives coming from different cultures. Currently I am focusing on Russian folktales and for my final project, I have illustrated the folk tale ‘Baba Yaga’. All my artwork is hand drawn using graphite pencils. I use watercolours for my coloured artwork, followed by some digital manipulations in tonal areas. I use limited colour palette and often quite pale tones for my images.
