About

Katerina Polyakova was born and raised in St. Petersburg, Russia. She graduated with a degree in Graphic Design from St.Peterburg State University. After several years of work in advertising, she moved to New York and earned

an MFA in Illustration from the Fashion Institute

of Technology.

Influenced by watercolor and printmaking, Katerina produces images, which are a complex combination

of digital and traditional methods. She likes to experiment with colors and textures to create a cozy and handmade look for editorial illustrations, posters, infographic maps, patterns, or picture books.
