Olga lives in the beautiful city of Barnaul on the western banks of the Ob River in the Altai Krai region of Siberia, Russia. She studied Public Relations at Altai State University and started working as a freelance illustrator in 2013. Olga’s plasticine illustrations are made using modeling clay to create relief images. Ideally suited to books targeting young children, her work aids the development of creative skills and artistic imagination. Olga’s clients include KPD in Estonia, Caramel Publishing in Belgium and several major Russian publishers. Olga draws much of the inspiration for her children´s illustrations from Leo, her 4-year-old son. In addition to being a proud mom, she is a coffee lover, a talented baker, and has a voracious appetite for reading books. She loves bright colors and soft pastels. Her favorite subjects to draw are frogs, flowers, butterflies and little girls.
