Hi, I'm Oliwia (pronounced like Olivia). I'm a Polish illustrator based in London, working primarily with acrylic and gouache paints, and occasionally dabbling with paper cut outs. My personal projects draw influence from Polish folklore, my position as an immigrant in Brexit Britain and serve as a means of navigating feelings around my relationships with people.
My love for illustration is almost matched by my love for pickles- especially gherkins.
I'm better at drawing with my hands than with my nose.
