About me.png

My name is Alja and I am an illustrator who grew up in lovely city Maribor, in Slovenia. I am currently based in Ljubljana, where I am also finishing my degree at University of Natural Sciences and Engineering. Art have always been a passion of mine, but only decided to take it more seriously in 2016.

I mainly work with my graphic tablet, but I also like to get my hands dirty with gouache and acrylics. Preferring gouache, since it gives illustration such a neat and clean look. I am inspired by everything around me; mostly by nature, by the things I find in museums, nearby cafe shops or things I discover at my friends house while we’re having a long talk. I am also inspired by the 70’s and 80’s, the style back then and mostly music that was playing on the radios since 1960.
