My name is Tanya Kuznetsova, I am an illustrator of Russian origin, living in France and Scotland. I received an MFA from the University of Gothenburg in Sweden with a semester placement in the Czech Republic and an MA in Children’s Literature from the University of Glasgow.

I draw children’s books and make patterns for textiles. In my artistic practice I try to nurture empathy with the natural and animal world around us, showing its diversity and fragility.

My projects have been awarded: short-listed finalist BCBF (2010); honorable mention  ‘A well designed book’ Poland (2012); finalist CJ festival Korea (2013); finalist ‘Clairvoyants’ Poland (2019); selected for the unpublished picturebook showcase (2022), finalist of CCBF (2023).
