Anastasiia has always thought the best books are books with pictures and would spend hours studying the details in illustrations.
She has loved to draw for as long as she can remember; first copying illustrations from books, illustrating her own stories and drawing family portraits.
After a couple of months at art school her teacher told her she had no talent which brought about many tears. After moving to Italy, Anastasiia decided to give her dream one more go and is still proving her teacher wrong!
