About me

My name is Tanya Kornienko.


I arrived to Madrid in March 2022 because of the war in Ukraine. I work remotely from Spain as a children’s book sales manager at Egmont Ukraine Publishing House, and at the same time I’m creating illustrations. I’ve been an artist for all my life, but 3 years ago during the quarantine period I started making digital art as a personal project called Tanya Kornienko Art. At first, I drew a series about cats-booklovers, portraits of friends, and people began to order drawings, portraits and T-shirts with them.

Then many illustrations appeared in connection with the situation in Ukraine, including my beautiful Mermaids-Warriors of the Black Sea series.

Three months ago I decided to create a project about women artists who inspire me. In general, I think that you should work on and draw projects that you like. So I have two book projects about kayaking in Kyiv and hiking in the Ukrainian Carpathians. And female artists project is a rethinking of a personal life path. To answer the question “Why do I do what I do?”

I am currently looking for opportunities for promoting my works, I want to exhibit them so that as many people as possible can see them and learn about Ukraine. I also make custom bags, T-shirts and mugs with my artwork.
