I can’t recall where on my online travels I first saw the art of Ola Liola, but her stunning prints definitely made an impression.
Ola Liola was born in the Ukraine and grew up surrounded by incredible majestic nature. When she was 16, she moved to Israel with her family, where she studied design at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design. She is a freelance illustrator and fashion accessory designer. Working in fashion drove her to create through questions. How could emotion be expressed with color? How could thoughts, feelings or special events be relayed through visual expression?
Her images of animals emerged as a result of these questions. The illustrations are hand drawn and scanned in high resolution. She uses water colors and ink, and occasionally black pen lines.
For more of Ola Liola’s stunning artwork, and to purchase, please visit her Etsy shop and her website.
Ola Liola has generously offered to give away one of her limited edition cat prints to one lucky winner. Winner gets to choose the print.
