Victoria Semykina, illustrator

Victoria Semykina was born and grew up in Moscow where she studied painting for six years at the Art Institute under Sourikov. Victoria is fond of traveling around the world and is currently living in Bologna, Italy.

Since 2006, she has been working as an accomplished illustrator in Russia and Italy, and is currently combining her illustration career with further studies at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna.

Among her most recent accomplishments are several exhibitions, as well as several published illustrated books.
