I create unique artwork for licensing to help your product stand out in a competitive market and uplift your brand to a higher level.
I love seeing how my art and design solutions help my clients achieve their vision. It lights me up and inspires me to create more beautiful and original work.
Hi, my name is Kuralai Shadenova. I am a self-taught Artist, Pattern Designer based in San Antonio, Texas. I studied International Relations and Public Policy, however my true passion has always been about creativity. In my artwork I mix different mediums. Unique designs are created based on my inspirations from the mixture of cultures, stories I read, relationships I cherish and my favorite colors of nature. My unique hand-painted artwork elements are woven into an artful design story. They are simple yet elegant artworks with many details.
My creations are influenced by the mixture of European and Asian cultures I grew up in. I was raised on European and Russian fairy tales, but my ethnic (Kazakh) motifs inspire me too. I love spending time with my favorite people, being in nature and seeing how it changes colors season after season.
I have embraced a completely new art project for the first time in my life - my Big Painting Project (61"x78"), which I was commissioned recently. It was a real EXPERIENCE!

Do you need an artwork that stands out, ideal for your product in mind and
available for buyout and/or licensing?
Finding the artwork that speaks to your brand and at the same time available for buyout and licensing can be overwhelming.
It may be available for purchase but doesn't look unique to you or it looks one of a kind,
however not available anymore.
I understand how frustrating it is when you see the artwork you like and don't know anything about availability of that artwork/pattern design.
I would particularly love to design for fabric, textiles as well as smaller brands
to help their products to stand out in a competitive market.
I love seeing how my art and design solutions help clients to achieve their vision.
It really lights me up and inspires me to create more beautiful and original work!
I license my designs exclusively and non-exclusively. I also have designs that are available for buyout.
