HELLO! MY NAME IS OLA (short version of Aleksandra in Poland)
Welcome to my art world! I'm an illustrator who's journeyed from the beautiful landscapes of southern Poland to the enchanting shores of New Zealand. I've spent the last few years creating art digitally, but I've recently gone back to traditional tools like paint, paper, and crayons and I used a somewhat different approach in my style.
My art is all about adding a touch of magic and humor. I want to spark wonder and curiosity in those who see my work.
My studio is right near the beach, and while many people love summer, I'm more of an autumn person. I find inspiration in the colorful vibes of fall.
My desk is a bit of a mess, with art supplies scattered around, a cup of tea that's gone cold, and the organized chaos that fuels my creativity.
I get my inspiration from magical stories, myths, and legends. These tales let my imagination soar, and I try to capture that feeling in my art. I like to pay attention to the fine balance between safety and excitement in my illustrations.
“In a children’s book there must always be a road on which the author respectfully comes to a halt, letting the child continue on their own. Some threat or wonder that is never explained.” Tove Jansson

When I'm not drawing, I enjoy activities like aeroyoga, climbing and exploring new things to break the routine.
