Hi! My name is Olga Shtonda. I’m an artist and illustrator from Kharkiv, Ukraine.
I graduated from Kharkiv State Academy of Design and Arts where I have studied book graphics (2009-2015).
   I make illustrations for children’s books, magazines, advertising. I’m also fond of creating my own stories and short animated videos. I like to combine different materials and technics such as ink, pencils, collages and printmaking.
   In between illustrating, I love traveling, riding my bicycle and observing people. It always helps to collect materials, stories and ideas for my next artworks. My works are highly inspired by humans and nature, they are fun and cheerful because I like to make people smile:)
