About me

My name is Roksana and I'm a graphic design student based in Poland.

I’m a self-taught artist, specialising in colored pencil and soft pastels, creating portraits of wildlife and pets for people all over the world including the UK, Europe, USA and Australia.

 

I have been drawing since childhood and I can't imagine life without it. I aspire to become a full-time artist one day. I love realism that's why I pay very close attention to details and color accuracy. I bought my first set of professional colored pencils few years ago and I've been constantly developing my art skills since then. I put a lot of hard work and patience in every drawing to make it unique. As a dog and parrot owner I’ve always felt a connection to animals.

I find them very interesting and I want to show their beauty and personality.
