et cetero

Born in Ptuj. At first she wanted to study piano, but soon changed her interest in other field of artistic creativity, in architecture.

After graduation, her first building Municipal Building in Gorisnica (Slovenia) won international award Grand Prix at the international architectural competition ‘Leonardo’ for young architects of II. region UIA for the best realisation in Minsk, 2005.

Meanwhile, she also won some awards in graphics. From 2002 till 2006 she published 11 Slovenian stamps.

After the birth of first child (out of three), she expanded her creativity and began to write stories and poems. From 2011 till 2017 she published 9 authorial children books for different distinguished Slovenian publishers.

After two of them, Two Little Architects and Magic Pencil, the project of Urban Children Installation was based, which was under the auspices of the European Capital of Culture 2012. The goal of the project was the inclusion of children into the open urban space(s), where children's creations are put on display for the public audience.

Her books are more and more world widespread.

Animals from her books are inspirations for her everlasting aspiration to re-make them into installations for galleries or public spaces. Why not even parks… It is most probably her educational background in architecture that makes her perceive her books rather more as projects than simply as books.

At last she remarks: 'When I will be old (which I'll probably never be) I want to have my own picture book museum. Eric Carle has it, there is one in Japan, why not third one.'
