Biography: Greetings to the Team!
My name is Kateryna Brovkova. I am an artist, illustrator & fashion designer from Ukraine. I’m very proud and happy to be Ukrainian, even despite so painful trials for all Ukrainian people, that we are going through now.
Currently, I live in Munich, Germany. I was forced to temporarily relocate due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
I’m a participant and a winner of multiple arts and fashion competitions (FIDA WORLDWIDE, DRAWADOT). I have been working in the field of fashion & commercial illustration and design for many years, as well as working on graphic content for social networks, producing my own Illustration brands of prints and postcards in Ukraine, and being a part of worldwide fashion illustration and design community.
I have always paid attention to fashion details, patterns, textiles, and colors, starting from my parents’ clothes in the childhood
I was starting to draw starting 3 y.o age, and then, was learning to draw and express the forms and objects using different mediums and technics.
All my creative & business activities have always been related to design, fashion and art. Now, in the modern world, the need for sustainable fashion and reasonable consumption in common is more acute than ever. That is why I transferred part of my creativity to the digital medium. Translating fashion images in my art compilations, I appeal to the uniqueness and value of ideas, moving to chamber capsule collections.
I believe that art has the ability to transmit global values and be an influencer for the design and fashion industries.
And of course, art is the best way to emphasize your individuality and
give meaning, special feelings, and vibes to all your spaces – private or commercial.
Since I practice Kundalini Yoga, I’m working with creative, high-vibes vibrations, and good-feeling positive energies. So all of my art pieces are created when I’m happy and full of energy and put all that energy of love and growth into art.
Thus, I share not only my art but also good vibes from this art.
This collection symbolizes the idea that in each of us there is a child who believes in his\her dreams and hear the soul. As long as we believe in our dreams, we can achieve anything!
Even as an adult, it’s important to keep dreaming big and believing in yourself!

Artist : Josey Jessee
Country : United States
Josey Jessee (b. 2000) is an artist and college student currently living in Savannah, GA. Jessee was born and raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, until she left to attend college at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) in 2018.
Thanks to her family, Jessee has been immersed in the fine arts since birth. Her mother is an art collector and her father a photographer. She was encouraged to create by her parents and, as such, has been making paintings since she was four. This art-positive environment ultimately led her to study many different art disciplines in college before finally settling on painting as her major.
Jessee mainly works with acrylic in abstract ways. She employs a strong use of color in her work, resulting in vibrant compositions. Besides traditional media, she has started to work with new media art, mainly digital and video.
Jessee graduated in the Summer of 2022 from SCAD with a BFA in Painting. Jessee is still deciding where she plans to move next. However, regardless of where she ends up, her cat Bread will be with her, and so will her art.
As a young adult, having grown up with social media and advertising, I cannot help but become influenced by the idea that perfection is achievable. Growing up, I have constantly considered myself different or “other” from my peers. This inseparable part of my identity has caused me to strive for perfection throughout my life. If I was perfect, maybe I could blend into the crowd. If I were perfect, perhaps all my issues would lessen. The work I am creating is a visual representation of how the goal of trying to achieve perfection—in our work and in ourselves—is incompatible with the messiness of life.
I accomplish this in two ways: first, by using white acrylic panels that have been laser cut to create perfect geometric-shaped holes, and second, by creating abstract expressionist paintings on panels that represent the chaos in our lives. The process of assembling the works is part of the experience. While building my work, it becomes apparent that even the acrylic panel is not perfect. The closer you look, the more the defects stand out.
Ultimately I’ve come to realize that even perfection is flawed. By assembling these two components into a whole piece, the viewer is confronted with the abstract concept of perfectionism put into physical terms. I want viewers to consider how this concept of perfection affects their daily lives when viewing my work.
