Veta Bakhtina’s paintings and illustrations focus on themes of home, nostalgia, and manifestations of infinity in nature. Veta grew up in St. Petersburg, Russia, at the end of the Communist era and credits her exposure to uncharted nature, the rural Russian countryside, and tradition of heritage for much of her inspiration and working style. Veta graduated with a BFA in Illustration and Scenic Design from The Evergreen State College in 2014, and lives in Washington State.  Her children’s book The Magical Traveling Bunk Bed is currently seeking representation. Her illustrated Creatures’ Secrets Animal Divination Card Deck and Old World Creatures Coloring Book are available at
