Nice to meet you!

I am a children's book illustrator and an Artist/Designer for the Gift & Home Decor industry. I got a degree in Environmental Management but then decided to switch my career to illustration since this is where my passion always lied. I have been working with various clients worldwide for many years now, committing myself fully to every project I am fortunate to work on. I am a reliable artist who never misses deadlines, is good with following a client's directions while also offering their unique artistic vision.

When I am not drawing I read books, watch movies and take care of my dog. My favourite movies are Salaam Bombay! by Mira Nair and Сказка странствий by Aleksandr Mitta, my favourite writers - Madeline Miller and Vasil Bykaŭ.

I currently live and work in Grodno, Belarus


Have a project you would like to discuss? Don't hesitate to write me at I would be happy to help you!

"After considering a few potential illustrators, I hired Maryia to create the cover art for a Middle-Grade novel called “Midnight Quakes.” The final cover art turned out to be perfect for the theme of this children’s story, which needed something mysterious, captivating, yet whimsical. Maryia was the perfect choice! The art far exceeded my expectations. She could not have been more professional—timely, open to feedback and simply a pleasure to work with".
