About me
Hi, I'm Liza and I like to draw. Illustrator & visual storyteller. My work is about everyday, about something beautiful and even a little magical. Some things are imaginary while others are real. I work across different mediums and I work hard to develop a coherent but sometimes it gets boring and I abandon the idea. I'm also Ukrainian but based in London (most of the time), where I work and study. Let's chat or even collaborate? Email me at: yelyzavetaberestova@gmail.com

  • 'Make Concertina Booklets with us' Workshop Poster
    'Make Concertina Booklets with us' Workshop PosterI've made this poster for a workshop, which I will be cohosting with the zine society Artizine UK and Assemblage youth collective I'm a part of. I made a typographical one because I wanted to challenge myself as well as make it have a friendly feel to it!

I’m not good with typography so you better believe I’ve spent quite some time figurin

    Series of designs inspired by the endangered plant speciesThis project grew out of the university brief.

Colourful and bold contemporary botanical designs that are not only attractive visually but also serve a purpose - to support a social cause. A social cause being a donation of 10% from each sale

  • Winter In Kyiv
    Winter In KyivDuring the quarantine in Kyiv I was impressed by the amount of falling snow and every time I got excited as a little kid. Of course, the store outside of my window inspired me and as the result I made 3 illustrations following the same theme and a GIF.
  • 'STORIES' Zine
    'STORIES' ZineThis Zine is about people, it’s about the stories we tell each other, it’s about support we provide to one another and emotions we experience together. Together but apart. Way before the pandemic hit we’ve learned to stay connected using our phones, laptops and earphones. This connection isn’t necessarily bad, it’s just … different. We feel all the same things, through the same sense of touch, we laugh and cry from what we see on the screen. We create new digital spaces to connect people the sam
  • Carpathian Mountains
    Carpathian MountainsI went hiking in the summer 2020 in Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains. I brought back dozens of good memories, friends and inspiration. The latter one has evolved into this collection of mountain postcards.
