Creativity is one of my core values. My mom is an amazing artist (Yulia Balobanova) so art is in my blood. I like to play with ink pens. Colour visits sometimes. Some of the art is dark, some is emotional, but all of it is expressive and relaxing to create.
Got a favourite or want to commission me to create a piece of art for you? Let me know.
In 2018, I made custom Christmas cards to order for my friends, which I sold through Instagram stories. I attended a free workshop organized by Ladies Wine & Design in Ottawa where we learned calligraphy and they gave us a pen to create art with. I continued with this medium afterwards, greatly improving my skill.
In 2019, I made 30 custom "thank you" cards for CASCO, a charity organization at the Telfer School of Management, which raises money for CHEO, sick kids hospital in Ottawa. The cards were for sponsors who helped with the annual CASCO gala. The trick with the cards was to make each one the same by hand.
