About me


Hi, my name is Lena. I live and work in St. Petersburg. I was educated in advertising and graphic design. In my works I use different techniques: watercolor, pastels, color pencil, gouache and digital illustrations. I draw illustrations for my own and others' books, postcards, invitations, posters, websites and magazines.
