ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATOR:
Tatsiana is based in Bordeaux, France. She is originally from Belarus and has also lived in Turkmenistan, Germany and Ireland. She believes this background is reflected in her work. Tatsiana’s father was a military man from the Soviet army, so she moved a lot during her childhood. She continued to travel until her late 20s before finally settling in France. She still loves travelling. Tatsiana is completely self-taught in art, although she has taken some online drawing courses and is currently attending a drawing course at Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts (School of Fine Arts) in Bordeaux. She never stops learning. Tatsiana started illustrating two years ago after a career in fine wine trading.
