My name is Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva. I'm a visual artist, currently based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. I was born in Ufa, Russia.

I can describe what I do as a crossover of fine art and illustration. During my carrier, I worked both as an editorial, commercial illustrator for publishing houses around the world, and as an independent artist for galleries and museums.

In 2019 I’ve been working as a guest tutor (New Media in Illustration) at Artez academy in Zwolle, NL. Since September 2019 I'm working as a tutor (Illustration, Social Practices) at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, NL.
