I am quite free, I'd love to hear about your project.
Darya was born in the south of Russia in a small town surrounded by forests and rivers. Being close to nature greatly influenced her worldview and creativity. She holds a degree in graphic arts and a major in book graphics. Her work focuses on nature, animals, birds and plants as well as the interaction of nature and man. She creates her illustrations using collage. She likes to create a variety of textures with living materials (watercolor, gouache, acrylic, etc.) and combine them with each other, while sometimes she uses scraps of fabric, old newspaper clippings, and even cashier’s checks. Last year, together with her husband, they created a prototype of an AR (augmented reality) book, where the illustrations on the pages of the book came to life. At the moment, 5 books with her illustrations have aleady been published in the Russian market and one in the USA. Books with good illustrations have always been appreciated by her, and she is very pleased to be part of this magical book world.View Full Bio
