Dear wanderers of the internet ! Welcome to my website. My name is Nina and I'm an aspiring illustrator and graphic design graduate. I am mostly known for illustrating tender, whimsical and furry cute animals in a soft and delicate manner. I work with traditional media (mostly using watercolours, gouache and colored pencils) but I also create artwork digitally. Besides commercial work I love doing self initiated projects where I try to collaborate with other artists, experiment, challenge myself and grow as an artist. When I am not making art I love to travel, wander, explore nature, daydream, bake, ride my bike, do yoga, make dreamcatchers and find beauty in simple things.

 

Thank you for checking out my website  ♡
