"Hello! I'm an illustrator coming from Istrian peninsula (Croatia) where I live with my husband and our 2 girls. I graduated from School of Applied Art & Design in Textile dept. but my passion from an early age was creating cute and whimsical characters. Growing up on the coast I was fascinated by nature, my hands always full of bugs, lizards or some sea creatures while playing on the beach-I was fearless! I think exploring the nature was crucial for developing my imagination. The other thing I always loved was listening to my Mom's bed time stories-they always felt so real, as if I transcended into that imaginery world. A lot of that influence can be seen in my work today through my illustrative style. I love playing with textures and patterns and I love combining hand drawn icons with digital. I'm very drawn to blue hues with bright and vibrant colours. I really love what I do and I honestly hope it's what I'll be doing when I'm old and wrinkled cos I never saw myself doing anything else!"
