Hi, nice to meet you!
I am Iva (rhymes with “viva”) and I am an artist, illustrator, art instructor, and the founder of Art Side of Life®, where artists find online classes, inspirational interviews, and guides to improve their skills, get art supplies, and learn to make a living as an artist.
I have 15 years of experience in the toy and creative industry as an illustrator, character designer, art director, and branding specialist focusing on illustration, storytelling, concepts, and animation.
My art inspiration comes from traveling, trips to nature, decorations on old buildings, and animals. My travel itinerary usually involves animal-related destinations, colorful buildings, cute cafes, and flower fields.
I am currently based in Central Europe, where I enjoy beautiful nature and draw outside as much as possible.
