Hi I'm Naya,

I'm a passionate children's book illustrator based in Kyiv, Ukraine

I love drawing pictures and imagining stories. I fall in love with art from the first day I could hold a pen. Whenever I read words, an image comes to mind. They offer a glimpse of what can’t be expressed in words.

I love to explor in a forest and being surrounded by an abundance of nature. Using watercolor and pencil, I would like to capture atmosphere with all intricate details that reminiscing the Old World beauty and everything that touch the legends, tales and marvelous universes.
