Jitka Volfova

“I applaud the creativity Jitka employs in using three simple elements — color, oil, and water — to produce these stunning images. Every one is mesmerizing, offering something new and unique with each look. Any one of these makes for an impactful design element.”

Anna Ismagilova

“Anna’s illustrations go beyond the typical; she lets her artistic materials define the emotions in her work. From her use of explosive watercolor around a woman’s eye to the delicate strokes in the mussed-up hair of her subject, each creation exudes a raw playfulness. For excitement and sophistication, you can’t go wrong with Anna’s work.”
