Hi there! Nice to meet you! I am Iva.
I am an artist, illustrator, teacher and the host of Art Side of Life podcast & YouTube channel.
I have always loved creating something which brightens other people’s day.
I have multiple years of experience in the toy and creative industry as an illustrator, character designer, art director, and branding specialist with a focus on storytelling, concepts, and animation.
I also teach art and work with businesses in the field of social media and visual communication.
My art inspiration comes from traveling, trips to nature, decorations on the old buildings, and animals. That’s why my travel itinerary usually evolves around animal-related destinations, colorful buildings and flower fields. Some of my most memorable animal encounters are swimming around stingrays, manatees and coral reef diving. I might have been a fish in my previous life 🙂
I am currently based in Central Europe where I take advantage of beautiful nature and draw outside as much as possible.
