Bio


"I am a person before I am anything else. I never say I am a writer. I never say I am an artist... I am a person who does those things." - Edward Gorey

About me

My name is Victoria Zlatkin. I immigrated to Israel from Ukraine in 1992. Soon after arriving in Israel I studied Graphic Design. I have been working as a graphic designer for the past seventeen years.
About 6 years ago I began drawing as part of an internet fan art group. Most of my drawings are realistic style portraits, done in black or colored pencils.
Over time, my drawings have overcome the boundaries of the Internet and attracted the attention of the viewer in real life. It was often suggested to me to present an exhibition of my drawings. Over the past three years I have exhibited my work in various local and national exhibitions.
Currently, I am mastering the Japanese 'Sumi-e' painting technique on my own.
