Patternbank loves the digital artistry of Ukrainian artist Nadiia Cherkasova , also known as Your Porcelain Doll. Her love of drawing started when she was 4 or 5 she then went on to high school where she was taught by a great Ukrainian artist before going on to university. Originally trained as an architect, Nadiia’s passion for art has developed and her use of traditional mediums has moved on to her current favorite, the Wacom tablet. See more from Your Porcelain Doll here.
