My name is Svetlana Novikova. I've been a professional Artist for over 20 years, specializing in vibrant impressionistic fine art and people and animal portraiture. Originally
from Russia, I've lived in the US since 1992. I consider Austin my second home as I've lived here for over 17 years with my husband and son.

Some of my art has been featured in different publications such as 'Artist's' Magazine, 'Austin Woman' magazine, 'Origin' magazine, 'Discover Fort Collins' magazine, 'Just Frenchies' magazine, 'The Daily Texan', 'Stirrups and Saddles' magazine, and more.
I have also taught Art in private schools for over 10 years, and have conducted many adults Art workshops and private lessons in Austin area. I enjoy everything creative and love to experiment with different mediums and art subjects. I love working with kids and I enjoy direct communication with people at the event and parties.
I've been doing live Event Digital and Traditional Caricatures, Pet caricatures, Face Painting, Art Classes and workshops, and custom family and pet portraits in Austin for many years. I now also offer Live Event iPad digital caricature, live event Sketches and Illustration, Adult and Kids Paint parties, team-building art workshops, face painting and glitter tattoos, and more.
