Hello, my name is Yuliya and I am a freelance illustrator and surface designer.


Originally from NY, I graduated in 2012 from FIT with a double major in design and business. Since then, alongside working on commissions and freelance illustration, I have been designing, making and selling my own collection of greeting cards and coffee mugs. Like many artists before me, nature and animals are a cherished source of inspiration for me. I currently live in Chicago with my two bunnies, Marnie and Ham.
