Jana Kloučková Kudrnová

Graphic designer and illustrator from the woods near Olomouc. A graduate in Graphic Design from the Secondary School of Applied Arts in Uherské Hradiště, she went on to graduate in Graphic Design and Visual Communication from the Faculty of Multimedia Communications of Tomáš Baťa University in Zlín, having also spent an educational stay at the Jan Matejko Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. Although her workshop measures precisely 2.5 m × 4 m, the atmosphere, darkness and radiance of the woods beside which she and her family live often project themselves into her work. Although she is a lover of modern design, her illustrations hold determinedly to old techniques that require the artist to get his or her hands dirty.
