Could you tell us about yourself?
Hi! My name is Mariia and I’m a digital and watercolor artist. I love making space and floral design. Watercolor is just a hobby, but for a few years back it was my job.
How long have you been in this industry?
I have been in this industry for about 5 years and above.
When did you know you wanted to pursue designing and start selling it?
I helped my friends with museum decorations a few years ago. There was a lot of work and I had to make space art on walls, floor and even on curtains. After months of non-stop painting, I realized I can’t stop; I want to draw space illustrations to sell them and here we are now. 🙂
What inspires you the most? Where do you get your inspiration?
Music, nature, people around me, in fact I can find inspiration almost everywhere. But the most favorite thing is whenever I have new stuff; new software, new paint, paper, even one new brush. I just look at that and think “I should try it right now, I know it will be good”.
Are you a traditional or digital artist? What are your preferred mediums to create your designs and graphics?
This is a good question. I started as a traditional artist and I still fall in love with watercolor, but now I think digital design is much closer to me. I can use 3-4 different software for one project and it all depends on the idea.
Could you describe your design style?
Hm, contrast floral design, maybe.
What is your favorite part of the designing process?
Definitely the first step. When I started something new, I just knew I needed some flowers, leaves etc and there are no sketches, no rules. Only music and many different elements I am drawing.
Have you ever experienced creative blocks before? How did you handle it?
Never. Usually I just don’t have enough time. I think “I want to do this, that and that for a week” and one week later I’ve just finished a half of the first thing, forgot about the other 2 and thought of 5 different things at the same time. I’ll never experience creative blocks because I have no time for that.
