I’ve been drawing at live events for the last 4 years for retail store openings and PR events and parties. Clients include HEMA, Costa, Boscia PR event, Tartine et Chocolat, CraftyFox Market and others.

I have taught workshops with Pinterest at Blogtacular and at Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

My illustrations are all about capturing quirky characters, colours and sense of playfulness. I work with traditional mediums (gouache and pencils) as well as digitally.

My live portraits are full of character, playfulness and make for great shareable moments and keepsakes.

I’m part of Live Illustration London Collective and you can find more about what we offer here.

“Having a live illustrator at the event meant that everyone was busy social media-ing themselves - which amplified the event publicity tenfold!”

— Emma Parlons, Digital Media Director, PUSH PR

“It was absolutely lovely to work with Viktorija, she’s very kind and professional. Our customers were really happy with the live portraits activity. The result was great!”

— Maëva Lanly, Marketing & Communication at HEMA UK
