I am a self-taught artist from Kazakhstan with no background in arts. I started drawing as a hobby in 2013 and learned everything by myself. I was interested in mixed-media arts and one of my favorite methods of creating artwork is cutting real tree leaves.

Usually, it takes up to 6 hours for one leaf cutout. I've spent days and nights upgrading my skills. There was a time where I literally slept for 3-4 hours a day. But I can say with confidence that all my efforts were not in vain. Since that time, my work has gone viral throughout the internet and last year, I had a chance to work with Nickelodeon and Disney. I cut popular characters for Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. and they used my photos on their social media accounts. Disney asked me to create something extraordinary for Maleficent 2 and Frozen 2 for their marketing campaign.

I decided to share my story to show people that anything is possible. It is tough to start, but when you love something, despite all challenges, keep trying and keep dreaming and it will come true.

My story is not a manual on how to learn drawing with different materials. This is a story about how it is important to do what you love! Only in those moments can you really achieve something wonderful as a result.

The best way towards success is to start to believe in yourself.

Amazing! Love the details on this one. That the rest of the leaf is transparent but not cut out, makes it even more impressive
