Yulya Shironina

I was born in a small Russian town. By the age of four I was taught to read. I treated books with awe and interest.

I had a lot of books, most of all I loved fairy tales and encyclopedias, and of course if these were books with beautiful and well detailed pictures they were my favourite! 

Throughout my growing up, I was interested in many things: I wanted to be an astronomer, veterinarian, doctor, ballerina, interior and fashion designer, writer and a pretty warrior Sailor Moon. Only by the age of sixteen I decided to link my life with art. And although I tried several different non-artistic jobs, I always returned to illustration. Now I live and work on book illustration in St. Petersburg with my beloved husband and a plush carrot named Bruges.
