Hi! My name is Polina Tsymbal. I was born and raised in Russia, completed a Bachelor's degree in Graphic Design and then continued studying abroad, earning a Graduate Diploma in Visual Art and Creative Practice. Changing the whole environment, including geographical position, people, culture, even the language I speak in such a radical way moved me forward to a creative burst full of new thoughts and ideas. Doesn't matter if it's a magazine article, children's book or a product to be promoted I'm always excited about the challenge of storytelling.
Polina Tsymbal is an Adelaide-based artist who’s passion lies in digital illustration and animation. As of 2019, Tsymbal was lucky enough to gain recognition from the industry she so passionately puts her work into, and was accepted into the Illustrators Australia (IA) association, and that same year, achieved the IA Member’s Prize at the annual exhibition show hosted in Melbourne. These were defining events in Polina’s illustrating career, as she was finally receiving national recognition in this industry that truly gave her purpose, and it gave her the confidence she needed to really pursue illustration as a full-time job.
