Tatiana Vovchek is a Lisbon-based freelance illustrator who specializes in children illustrations, animal illustrations, and fashion-style people portraits. 

I have 6+ years of experience as an illustrator, specializing in children illustrations and pet illustrations; a graphic designer, specializing in book layout design, branding and logo design.
I have 10+ years of previous experience as a web & graphic designer in IT companies in Odessa, Ukraine where I gradually reached the position of Art Director. Further, I relocated to Paris, France where I worked as a web designer in an IT company called Holidog.

I work with the same clients for years. It is a great opportunity to polish the visual brand of the company so that the series of products will look unified in branding:

Leaders Publishing (3 years)
Other clients with who I was glad to work on a small project:

Besides commercial illustration, I am also an artist. I create fine art and while traveling I make lots of live sketches with watercolor and ink of the places I visit. 
I participate in art exhibitions and I curate the art community Urban Sketchers Odessa. I also teach watercolor sketching in a local art studio in Lisbon - Art Zone Global.
