My name is Margarita Levina and I’m a children’s illustrator.
I was born in Mariupol (Ukraine), but now I’m living in Haifa (Israel) with my husband and little son.
My art style can be described as digital colored pencils. I prefer to draw cute and funny illustrations with interesting stories. That’s why I chose children’s illustration as my path. And it’s also my great passion — I have a collection of beautiful children’s books from all over the world, and keeping it up regularly.
At the beginning of my career I worked as a designer at the printing house for a couple of years. So now I don’t have any troubles with technical issues of preparing my illustration for further printing.
Since that I had 7 years of experience in illustration.
- I worked as a freelance illustrator for such companies as: Little Steps Publishing, Phoenix Publishing House, UNICONF, Windy Press, HGM Group, etc.
- The first book I’ve illustrated is Polly Profiterole’s Little Town by Maggie May Gordon (published by Little Steps in 2019).
- I participated in the International Festival of Book Illustration in Moscow. Some of my illustrations were exhibited there in 2019.
- I am also a founder of the local community of the artists in Haifa — SKETCHIM.
So, if you have interesting projects feel free to contact me for a commission. And if you want to say «hi» , don’t hesitate either!)
Good luck and have a nice day!
