About Regina Kareev


Hello and welcome to my website!

I’m a Russian illustrator and surface pattern designer based in San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA.

Currently, I’m working on illustration commissions for private clients and take every opportunity to learn something new and expand my creative arsenal.

I also enjoy painting in watercolor, creating floral designs in ink and experimenting with other mediums in my sketchbooks.

I was lucky to work with the following companies: Department of Mass Communications of Novosibirsk region, Information and Analytical Agency DvernoeDelo, Unites-Siberia, 2GIS, BK55, Student City, Avanscena, ChSlovo.

Feel free to contact me for collaborations, commissions, licensing or with any other questions through e-mail: hello@reginakareev.com or through my contact form here
