"Hello, my name is Lena Nemik. I love to tell stories in drawings and create cute monsters. My drawings and characters are a bit freaky and hooligan, but I believe they are kind.

I enjoy working with traditional and digital media. I focus on the children's books illustrations. I create my own books and illustrate stories written by other authors. And I am really in love with it! I have been working with a variety of publishing houses, media projects and non-commercial initiatives since 2009, I have authored and illustrated two books.

In my creativity I was influenced by Tove Jansson with her Moomin's world and amazing characters of Hayao Miyazaki. I'm a big fan of Harry Potter universe and find a lot of inspiration in it. Also I look for creative ideas in good animation, beautiful books and wonderful people around. I like walking in the forest, riding my bike and cooking (and eating) vegan food!"
