Meet The Artist
Darya Karenski is an independent artist and textile designer. She is the founder of Pattern Talent, an illustration and design brand. The name stems from repeating patterns being Darya's major passion and strength and the logo reflects the traditional pre-computer pattern drawing method.
Her artwork is most known for sophisticated color combinations, classical art and natural history inspired motifs including plants and animals, vintage objects and curious characters from book pages. Think nerd art with a great taste! She works in a variety of mediums including watercolor, ink, gouache and digital.
Darya is a linguist and a native Russian speaker with global cultures and languages being another major inspiration source. She lives in Massachusetts, USA with her family, a flower garden (to relieve stress and draw inspiration from) and works from her studio in a 180-year-old colonial house. Researching local and global history undoubtedly leaves a trace in Darya's art!
