Speaking about how she turned her passion into a paying job Tatushka says, “In the beginning I was doing this for myself, but then People liked it and I started to get the orders from companies. Then it got serious when I received an order from a company producing nail polishes and lacquers to decorate their exhibition stand in as an advert for their new collection.”

“New ideas can come from anywhere. If I see a beautiful flower it becomes a design and the same if I see a wild animal. Even if I have a dream about something, Paris for example, I can use that as inspiration for new Lip art. The most difficult part is making sure that all the lines I draw are thin and when I draw them my hand should be very steady - I cannot even breathe,” she says.
