Yuliya Pieletskaya was born in Odessa, Ukraine but spent the latter half of her childhood in Upstate NY. She has been a freelance illustrator, surface and motion designer for the past 6 years and has worked with clients such as Cartoon Network and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Like many artists, she finds nature and animals a cherished source of inspiration. She currently lives in Chicago, IL with her husband and two bunnies Marnie and Ham who also often inspire her work.
