Being a mother of a nine years old boy and at the same illustrator of children’s’ literature, I’m very interested in kids’ psychology and how to communicate with younger generation not affecting their minds, but to learn from them a lot.

After my happy childhood in a Soviet Georgia, there came a time (still now) when my Russian roots became unwelcomed in my country (because of a Russian-Georgian conflict). Moral fighting of society for democracy and independence became one of the main interests in my art.

I have to mention that Georgian alphabet is one of the 14 existing alphabets in the world. The landscape is quite rich: mountains, plains, seaside so WELCOME to Georgia!

After my graduation from State Academy of Arts I had a chance to travel and even volunteer with my husband for a month in Moroccan village, where we received an extreme experience and lots of good friends. We lived in a community and during the day we had wall painting workshops with local kids and had delicious dinner invitations in between. After these kind of experiences we learned how important is to value and live in love with environment. Friends, PRACTICE IT…
