Natasha MalyutinaMy name is Natasha Malyutina aka samaposebe. I was born in Kharkov, Ukraine, graduated from Kharkov National University in 1999 as a mathematician. Now I live in sunny Southern California in Orange County.

I started my way into art from web design and flash animation. Then I did fine art for a while, finished Art Instruction Schools, won a grand prize in art competition in professional artist category. My passion has always been water color, I did some works in acrylic, but my best skill is still oil painting.

As I always had a thing for photography and image post-processing/editing, for the last couple of years I’m doing pretty much that. In 2011 and 2013 I took online workshops on photo manipulation and was awarded with “best in class” during the second one. Besides all the photo-related stuff I have experience in digital drawing and painting.

For now I work as a freelancer, so if you have anything in mind that I can help with – I can do pretty much anything with photos and am open to discuss your illustration needs 😉
