“I graduated from Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, Graphic Design. I work as a graphic designer at one of the companies, yet at the same time I am a freelancer and work on private orders as well. I have been passionate about drawing since I was a child. I grew up in the family of artists. My father was a sculptor, grandfather was a painter and my mother is an actress. So, perhaps that is why I have been so keen on drawing from my early years.

As for my characters, all of them have long hair. I like drawing long hairs in different ways. I have always liked long hairs, because I see some mystical details in them. I try to express the nature of each individual I draw through his/her hair.

Funny as it may seem, everyone thinks that these characters are painted by a girl. When meeting my customers, almost all of them are surprised, because they do not expect that in fact I am the author. I think it is because that I mostly draw girls and in an unusual way. About 4 years ago I started to transfer my characters onto different items and sell them. At first I put one of the characters on a t-shirt and there was a great feedback, so I decided to continue.

As for the UK, Raggedy eye Children's Boutique is an online store that sells children's accessories and handmade products. They saw my works on my instagram page and asked me if I wanted to co-operate. I agreed.

So far I only made posters for the online shop. Sales went well, so now we are going to create new products as well.
