About

Hi, I'm Sasha, a freelance illustrator and visual designer. Originally from Russia, but currently exploring islands and eating kanelbullar in Sweden.

After many years of working as a visual designer in digital agencies, I found my passion for illustration and started my freelance career to explore different opportunities. Since mid-2019 I've been full-time freelance focusing mostly on editorial, book, and brand supporting illustration. 

I also love doing a lot of small personal projects just to keep my mind fit. 
Outside of illustration and design my current hobbies include fooling around with my 2 y.o daughter, playing tabletop RPGs and baking pancakes.

If you'd like to discuss potential opportunities, please drop me a line: hi@sashakolesnik.com
