Magdalena Takáčová

I am an illustrator of children’s books, author of the picture book Vlásky [Hair] (published by Fragment), wife, mother to three cats and one dog, and soon-to-be mother of a little human.

My studies were in subjects absolutely unconnected with art in general and illustration in particular, but as I was born into the family of a painter and a graphic designer, perhaps I had no choice but to teach myself to follow in their footsteps …

I have been an illustrator of children’s books for about five years. I like most to illustrate books with animals and children in the main roles. It gives me great joy when a child’s eyes light up with delight as they turn the pages of a book I have worked on.
