I began my artistic career by creating intricate black and white patterns done with ink on paper, which was inspired by my Kandinsky loving aunty. I have since discovered a love for charcoal, graphite and oil paints. Nothing beats smudging and blending

  grumpy turkey
between love and madness lies obsession

Katerina Zmejkoska

I am an emerging artist/ illustrator/designer based in Melbourne. I am inspired by nature, culture and religion, constructing strong and meaningful pieces of work. Constant flow of organic lines can be seen throughout my work. Very often I use vibrant and contrasting colours or very light washes of colour. My work is usually stylised yet realistic. I often exaggerate parts of what I am drawing.
