Dubravka Kolanovic

Dubravka studied at the Savannah College of Art and Design in the USA and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb, Croatia, where she got a degree in painting. She published her first book, ‘A Special Day’, in the USA at the age of eighteen. Since then, Dubravka has devoted herself to children’s book illustration. She is very proud of her long-standing collaboration with UNICEF, for which she’s designed more than 80 cards and posters. Dubravka’s work was recognised by a prize from the Oshima Museum of Children’s Picture Books in Japan. Her illustration work was printed and awarded by 3×3 – a magazine of contemporary illustrations. Her books have featured on CBeebies Bedtime Hour. All her travels to incredible places such as the Amazon rainforest, African Savannah, Borneo, the Galapagos Islands, remote Pacific coral reefs, the Arctic and Antarctica are a constant source of inspiration for her. For years, she has volunteered in projects for the protection of the environment and animals.
