KATERINA VORONINA 

An illustrator and a mural artist, currently based in Paris.

I was born in Moscow where I studied painting for six years at one of the locals  Academies of Art. Later I completed a course in illustration at the British Higher School of Design (BHSAD)

In 2016, quite spontaneously, I moved to Tel Aviv and stayed there for the next 2 years.
Over the first 5 months in Israel I worked at an Israeli animation studio (Poink) as a background artist. Later, “Camilla” the cartoon we worked on, was shortlisted for the Cannes Film Festival (2018)
I relocated to Berlin in 2018. 
Where I began my career as a mural artist after one almost accidental commission in a cozy local café. Since then I have been lucky enough to paint many different offices, cafes and building facades in Berlin and all over Europe

In 2019 my friend Susannah Garden and I have launched the Sunday Sketching Berlin Project, in which we practice ourselves steadily twice a month as illustration teachers in a variety of locations in Berlin

In 2024 I moved once again, this time to Paris.

I do picture books and editorial illustrations, murals and silkscreen prints, hold various drawing workshops and I'm an avid sketcher.


Moving to other countries is an amazing experience of learning about the world and discovering yourself in it.
In my life as an expat, unusual stories happen at almost every turn.
This challenge feeds me with inspiration and a lust for life.
