My name is Hellen Koval, I’m 22 y.o and I was born in Eastern Europe, in the Republic of Moldova 🇲🇩 I am a self-taught artist and I have started working on pet portraits professionally in February 2019.
During my life I tried different ways to do art: I was drawing custom tattoo sketches, drawing with henna on the skin, tried watercolour and oil paintings, I even was a tattoo artist for a very short period of time!
I started to draw dogs for my father firstly! He had a dream to create his own personalized stamps with dogs who flew in space, so he asked me to draw a few for him. We were selling these stamps on eBay and when we released 7-8 personalised stamps, people began to buy them more and more.
Later I began to take real customers commissions and my first customer was my hairstylist with a pug. At the begging of her journey, I was doing everything by the method of trials and errors. Now, after almost 3 years I have non-stop coming clients and I’m very passionate about what I do!
