Petra Avanzo Caglic grew up in Slovenia surrounded by lush forest, charming mountains, fairy tales and vivid imagination. While working as a biological scientist for years she discovered her true vocation in children's illustration. The ability to give life to imaginary characters connects her with the world of children where anything is possible.
Petra completed the Children's Book Illustration and the Children's Book Writing Certificate at University of California San Diego Extension. Her work is showcased at international SCBWI conferences and published in Slovenian children's magazine.
When not sharpening her pencils or playing in the kitchen, Petra could be found outdoors with her family gathering giant pinecones, swimming with the sea turtles or sleeping under the stars. :)
