My name is Slavka Kolesar

I draw a lot.

I live in Fernie, BC, Canada.

I have a BFA in visual studies and art history from the University of Toronto.

I love large trees, observing the clouds and what reveals itself when I take the time to look.

I am currently illustrating a picture book with Groundwood Books scheduled for release in 2019.
