Hey there! My name is Olia Shovkova and I’m a Ukrainian illustrator and painter based in Prague, Czech Republic.

I illustrate, design, print, and sell a wide selection of art products in my shop artshovk.com. I work with different kind of materials including gouache, acryla gouache, watercolors, acrylics, colored pencils, ink, and I also work digitally.

My artworks are inspired by the things I see and places I discover. When I’m not making art, I enjoy being out in nature and going on adventures. I love visiting galleries, botanical gardens, zoo and I always have my sketchbook with me.

I’m available for illustration work, wedding invitations, and other creative projects.

If you’re interested in working together, please don’t hesitate to contact me: artshovk@gmail.com

I hope the pieces I make will bring you joy!

Here are more things about me:

  • I love creating cute paintings and patterns, usually with animals, flowers and plants involved.
  • I also enjoy painting portraits, especially with acrylics on canvas.
  • I love good books, coffee and lightning candles at night.
  • I’ve spent some time living and studying art at the University of Art in Bandung, Indonesia. Moving to Indonesia has changed my life in so many ways!
  • In Indonesia I tried sculpting, making ceramics and batik for the first time in my life.
