About me

I am Vera. A self-taught freelance illustrator, born and raised in Ukraine. Based in Spain. A great lover of nature, bold colors, fine lines, delightful textures, and wonky strokes.

I have always loved creating things, no matter what it is. Drawing, painting, sewing, woodworking, crocheting, sculpting, cooking, etc. Ever since I can remember, creating was the thing I enjoyed the most.

Even though I call myself a self-taught artist, I am constantly learning new techniques and taking online and presential courses such as:

  • Experimental printmaking in large format by Vanessa Gallardo Fernández, 2023
  • Illustration. An Artist’s Book by Inmaculada Otero-Carrasco, 2023
  • Creative Illustration and Introduction to Children’s Illustration by Adolfo Serra, 2022
  • Modern Watercolor Techniques and Techniques applied to watercolor illustration by Ana Victoria Calderon, 2021
  • Naturalist Illustrations with Watercolors: Drawing and Composition by Cristina Cilloniz, 2021
  • Botanical Illustration with Watercolors by Paulina Maciel, 2021
