About Iryna Potapenko

I live in Odessa - a city in a south of Urkaine - in a small cozy house. I like to paint in my garden or on the beach. For many years I have been drawing and painting for children, illustrating books and making cartoons. My hobby turned into a dream job. In my pictures I share my sunny mood and love with you. It's great to think that my works decorate other people's homes in different countries. It brings us all together.
