Olga has been creating art since her childhood and has studied painting all her life - from the simplest sketches to academic drawing and architectural projects. Techniques that Olga uses to create illustrations can be very different ranging from collages to watercolour or drawing with an ordinary pencil. The beauty of some objects can inspire Olga to draw more realistically, whereas some compositions may simply be an abstract reimagining.
