Nastya Istorkina is a wonderful young artist from Ukraine. She caught our eye the very first time we saw her work! She's cutting edge with her fun, artsy designs, and so talented with color and composition! Today we want you to meet her and see a bit of her work that she has created just for us!
"Hello! I’m Nastya. I live in Donetsk (Ukraine) with my husband and our naughty pets - one big dog and two cats. I love my life and I’m really happy! Smiling is my secret weapon against any problems. Even my blog's name is, 'Smile. Live. Scrap.'
