interior DESIGNER, artist & AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Olga. I'm an interior designer, artist, trainer and author of a book on interior design drawing with markers "The SKETCH" (available on Amazon and included in the program of Denver University, USA). I have received numerous international prizes for both design and architecture and I'm so glad to share my knowledge in design drawing and sketching with you!
My mission: My mission is to inspire as many people as possible to learn how to draw by hand, so they can unleash their creativity.
I help interior designers, architects and creatives from all walks of life maximise their artistic potential through the art of hand rendering and sketching.
After learning Interior Architecture for 6 years at a world-leading Russian Art Academy (Saint-Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design) and working for more than 10 years for some of the biggest interior design and architecture firms in Russia, I saw firsthand how sketching can be an incredibly valuable tool for designers to express their ideas and grow in their creative practice.
I developed my Online School of Sketching to share the secrets of hand rendering, so interior designers, architects and all creatives can learn how to sketch and express themselves through the art of hand rendering, without having to rely on tools like CAD, 3Ds Max and other visualisation software which can be really overwhelming and lock our creativity.
Originally I'm from St. Petersburg, Russia, lived for 3 years in Copenhagen, Denmark, now I live with my husband in Auckland, New Zealand.
Biggest passion: My passion is to draw and create video courses where I teach interior designers and interior design students on how to draw their projects with markers by using perspective and in a professional manner.
Background: I graduated at Saint-Petersburg Stieglitz State Academy of Art and Design (Russia), MSc in Arts (interior architecture, 2004-2010)

Olga's lessons were possibly the best part of the week! As a designer I learned how to sketch at school but unfortunately never really developed the skill. So Olga's course was a great way to brush up on the principles of perspective and along the way I also picked up a whole suitcase of tricks on how to make my sketches look really professional! Olga's tutorials are fun, fast-moving, extremely well organised and after each lesson I felt like I made a whole lot of progress!

Some time ago I stumbled upon Olga’s profile on Instagram. I was instantly taken by her ability to make design ideas come to life with her vivid and detailed sketches. Unfortunately I don’t speak Russian, so when her sketch course came in English I didn’t hesitate to sign up for it. Olga is a splendid educator, and I am so pleased with the results I get.
The lessons are well structured, easy to follow, and you will quickly get nice results. She really loves sketching, and her passion goes into her teaching so you can’t help to get smitten by her enthusiasm.
I hope she will develop more of her courses in English, so I can continue evolving my sketching skills. If you would like to develop or improve your sketching skills I can only say, that by Olga’s help you can’t avoid improving your sketching.

Lessons from the course are so interesting! Perspective drawing became easy for me after this course! I found Olga on YouTube and was soooo happy to learn from her! Her course is excellent!
