Polina Oshu is a graphic designer from St.Petersburg, Russia, since 2012 she lives in Riga, Latvia. For many years she was part of design studio, where she used to create logos, brands and websites. After Polina became a mother, she was faced with the fact that time for work remains very little and she realized that she wants to dedicate this time only on things that make her happy. So she naturally chose drawing, and started to create surface patterns. She really enjoys the process.
