My name is Gulnara and I am an artist based in Los Angeles, California. I have been drawing since before I could write and art has always played a huge part in my life. I always experiment with techniques and different mediums. My favorite mediums are watercolors, oil paints, ink and color pencils. I love to create illustrations that inspire and bring smiles.

I hope you enjoy my classes ;)
