Born in 1983 in Donetsk, Ukraine, Yana Rozdobudko is a sculptor, illustrator and painter. After graduating from the National Academy of Fine Arts and Architecture in 2007, she was the director of her own workshop for ten years, as well as a second workshop in Crimea, which disappeared in 2014. 

She participated in the Arsenal Large Sculptural Salon (Kyiv, Ukraine) in 2015. She was also a curator in art exhibitions at the Museum of Hetmanate (2011), Museum of Litriche (2015) and Museum-workshop by I.Kavaleridze (2021). In 2022, as a painter and sculptor, she created a personal exhibition “The Silence of the Canvas” which was a great success.
