My name is Masha Krasnova-Shabaeva (she/her). I'm a visual artist and illustrator, 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 career, I worked both as an editorial, commercial illustrator for publishing houses around the world, and as an independent artist for galleries and museums.

Since 2019 I’m teaching illustration at Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, NL.
