For Polina's whole youth she grew up in a small green town in the south of Russia. Her older sister is also an artist and she always found inspiration from her. After graduating from children's art school she studied classical art education in a college, after which sh found myself in illustration.
She now lives in the Netherlands. She completely fell in love with the country for it's culture, language, and the fields, that reminds her of the place she grew up.
Polina loves to include elements from nature, plants and home comfort in her art. In her works, she pays great attention to the poses of the characters, space, details, and colour in order to best illustrate ideas. To produce these works she uses Photoshop in combination with traditional media, such as pencils, watercolour, and ink, and is always excited to experiment.
