My name is Lilianna Lasocka and I am an artist born in Poland. I’ve been drawing since I was a kid and I had my first art exhibition when I was 14. For a long time, I couldn’t find my way in art. I graduated in Painting from the Wroclaw Academy of Fine Arts, but I wasn’t sure if Painting was really for me. I was always more attracted to drawing illustrations rather than create big abstract pieces. Once I was asked to draw some illustrations for children’s books. I felt very uncertain when I was publishing my final works on my social media, but soon I got a lot of nice messages from people telling me they love my illustrations. This encouraged me to go this way. I bought a graphic tablet and since that time I draw almost every day.
Maybe I will come back to painting one day, but at this moment in my life I want to travel and live in different countries, so working on a graphic tablet gives me mobility and the possibility to do it.
I am usually working part-time to have financial stability and after work, I am working on commissioned or my own projects.
In my art, I am mostly focusing on the connection between people and nature or I am showing animals in a witty, personified way. I am not trying to change the world or educate anybody with my art. I just want to show my perception of the world.
I’ve been working on illustrating children’s books, but my big dream is to publish my own book. Now I am working on my own illustrated story for children, so I hope this dream will fulfill soon. ~ @liliannalasocka_illustration
