Hello, I am Olga Shevchenko, artist and illustrator from Russia. 

I love working with watercolors, transparent paper, embroidery and experimenting with printing inks. In creating illustrations, I like to play and experiment with shape and texture. In my works, I show my admiration for the beauty of the plant world, it's uniqueness and diversity. It fascinates, inspires and fills me with delight! Nature lives near us with its mysterious and unique life. It protects us, heals us, feeds us, and our human existence depends on this fragile world. The Earth is our common home. My illustrations are about the relationship between nature and man and about the careful attitude to the plant world.
