Hi, I'm an illustrator and graphic designer from Ljubljana, Slovenia.
I studied History of Art (Faculty of Arts, Ljubljana) and also Visual Communication at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Ljubljana. In my work, I love to combine handmade and digital processes for a fresh, artful approach and enjoy playing with different techniques. Inspired by books, museums, medieval times and tiny little details. I live and work in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
