Illustrator Gallery - Polina Gortman
Polina Gortman is a children’s book illustrator living and working just a little bit to the East from Seattle, Washington. She was raised on the banks of the Yenisey river in Siberia by her grandmother, and spent her childhood exploring taiga, feeding burdock leaves to cows and making up stories about precarious adventures of toys lost in a vegetable garden. Now Polina balances her days between playing with art supplies in her studio, sketching outdoors and devouring books. Her debut picture book, RANDALL AND RANDALL by Nadine Poper, was released in 2019 by Blue Whale Press, and was awarded a Blue Star from Kirkus Reviews.
