Oksana Drachkovska

I was born in Chernivtsi (Ukraine). I grew up in Chernivtsi and moved on to study at an art college located in the Carpathians then I moved to study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Lviv, where I’ve been living for the past 13 years. I studied in Lviv National Academy of arts (Painting) There are quite a few things that inspire me (some of them might be a little weird). Trees, the sea and the ocean, as well as birds and clouds. And, of course, I love to observe people, they inspire me quite a bit. Every person I meet gives me a better understanding of myself. I like to play with metaphors. I’m one of those people who find it easier to think on paper. My main interest are the illustration of children’s book and editorial illustration.
