Iveta Abolina started drawing in early childhood – tracing over pictures from books and magazines. This tedious task has given its fruits – Iveta's attention to detail is seen in every piece of work she has done. Painting classes during high school and a Design and Technology degree from Parsons School of Design improved Iveta's interest in design. Her style of illustration is characterized by the search for beauty and equilibrium in chaos. She attempts to capture a moment of her own imagination and finds ways to mix her hand drawn images and textures into a graphic alchemy. She likes to put elements in order and then disorder; to break them and fix them - and finally get a balanced composition. Within each piece she tries to create an intimate world that possesses its own ethos and its own emotional range.
