Olga is an illustrator based in Moscow, Russia of Korean ethnicity. She clearly remembers a winter day at 5 years old when she and her mother passed a drawing art class. Olga was completely taken by their beautiful drawings. However, her personal artistic journey needed to wait 20 years. When Olga was given an opportunity to travel to Canada to study animation at Max the Mutt Art and Animation College in Toronto, she was totally hooked. After graduating, she returned to Russia and started working as an animator on a full feature animation film at one of Russian animation studios. At the same time, she worked as a freelance illustrator whenever she could to practice drawing. Eventually she realized that illustration is something she would like to spend more time and focus on. Olga takes her inspiration from everyday life and stories. When not illustrating, she loves to spend her time with her dog and skating. If you ask Olga for another profession — she would say a dancer but alas, she will leave that as a childhood dream.|
Below are some of her recent projects, Miracle by Karen S. Chow (Christy Ottaviano Books), Hubbles series (Uprise Management), Patisson & Gorkaya Redka by Julia Vesova (Strekoza publishing house), Tractor for Santa Claus by Alexandra Kalinina (Strekoza publishing house).
