In Summer of 2015 she created a series of illustrations for Barnes & Noble to be used in the new extensions in their Atlanta and Dallas locations, a beauty product department named “Glossary”. Alyona developed the style and content for twenty hand-painted illustrations on beauty portraits and cosmetic products, executed in watercolor and ink. These illustrations became a part of the permanent beauty bar environment, as decor as well as on the items themselves.
Alyona’s passion is characters’ portraits and city scenes. For years she has been creating series of portraits of characters who served her as inspiration and role models. She executed over 20 ink and watercolor portraits of actors, writers, singers and film directors. Each portrait is a reflection of her own vision of this individual: how she sees them through her eyes. Her city scenes are in a way is “fantasy world within reality”, where colors clash and come outside the lines. She tries to see familiar faces and places in a new perspective.
