Yevgenia Nayberg was born in Kiev, Ukraine. After graduating from The National School of Art in Kiev, she began working as a freelance illustrator and an assistant art director for, UkranimaFilm, an animation studio. Yevgenia moved to the United States in 1994, where she studied theatre design at Carnegie Mellon University. At the age of 23 she received her MFA degree in Theatre design from California State University, Long Beach. She has since enjoyed a successful career as a painter, scenic - costume designer, and illustrator. Yevgenia’s dedication to theatrical arts is clearly manifested in her illustrations which rely on color intensity, fantastic landscapes, and dramatic light and shadow to tell a story. When illustrating, she likes to look for a visual equivalent of a word, for metaphorical translation into the language of visual art.|
Below are her most recent projects, Rappaccini's Daughter by Nathaniel Hawthorne (Vook), Cartographies: Meditations on Travel by Marjorie Agosin (University of Georgia Press), CD packages for Jim Connolly, Draft Protection created for NY Spirit Magazine, Alice and the Grain of Sand by Caleb Cain Marcus (The Cygnet Foundation-Raymond W. Merritt), and posters for Hamlet and Lit Moon World Shakespeare Festival.
