Open to full-time and freelance work opportunities.
All the work featured is from 2022 onward unless stated otherwise.
Looking for full-time roles in illustration and graphic design within the publishing and entertainment industries, but open to short-term projects.
I have experience designing for some of Hollywood's biggest entertainment advertising companies as well as creating original illustrations for journalistic and media giant, NBCUniversal. As a freelancer, I've been commissioned to create designs for films recognized by the Academy and BAFTA.
I am constantly pushing my comfort zone and experimenting.
I recently graduated from Columbia University, and am currently working on personal projects and freelance film poster designs. In my free time, I hope to return to traditional art mediums such as silkscreen and ceramics.
If you like what you see, please don't hesitate to reach out for professional endeavors.
After 14 years of formal art courses, I have a wide range of skills in traditional and digital mediums.
In my digital work, I draw inspiration from analog printmaking styles and techniques. For fun I like to do documentary and street photography, read, and spend time in nature.
I was born in Moscow, Russia, and grew up in the DC metro area. I am also a social activist and a member of the LGBTQA+ community. I explore themes of nostalgia and identity in her personal work, and I'm not afraid of sensitive or "taboo" topics.
