Alja is 22-years old illustrator based in Slovenia, where she also grew up. She is currently finishing her degree at University of Natural Sciences and Engineering in Ljubljana. Art has always been a passion of hers, and she decided to take it more seriously in 2017.
She mainly works with her Wacom Intous graphic tablet, but she also loves traditional painting with gouache and acrylics. She prefers gouache, since it gives illustrations such a neat and clean look, almost identical to what she creates on graphic tablet. She is inspired by everything that surrounds her, mostly by nature and museums. Being a big fan of 60s, 70s and 80s we can feel the nostalgia in her illustrations.
Her favourite artists are Josef Frank, Henri Matisse and Pierre Boncompain.
