“My book and I were very lucky to meet such a highly professional, sensitive, talented artist with a unique author’s style. Fabulous images of the great Siberian rivers, cute, touching, very emotional seals, an abundance of ornaments, patterns and symbols in accordance with the culture of the Far North and Baikal.
