Sofiya Voznaya

Sofiya Voznaya is a Kazakhstan-born illustrator, animator and artist. In a previous life she was a French-Russian translator. But that quickly became boring, and in 2012, in Moscow, after two years of studies, she made her talent for animation and illustration her profession. When her old friends from Central Asia, Ilan Greenberg and Natalia Antelava, offered her to join Coda, Sofiya jumped on the opportunity.

Sofiya is now based in Berlin, after living in Kazakhstan, Russia and Tunisia. But that’s another story.
