My name is Petra Braun and I‘m an artist and illustrator settled in the countryside of Austria. Together with my husband and our two cats Woody and Berta, I live in a small house surrounded by woods and rivers.
I grew up on a farm, close to animals and nature. As a kid, I loved to wander through the woods and meadows, playing with the animals on the farm (like my special friend ‘Kasimir’, a black billy goat who walked like a dog).
I still have a soft spot for animals of all kinds, and can‘t pass by them without saying hello. So if you walk with me, be prepared, it may take a while before we get anywhere!
Drawing and making stuff has always been my obsession, like drawing all over my schoolbooks (which was definitely more fun than doing homework) or creating special presents for family and friends.
I‘m also a qualified Graphic Designer, hold a degree in Fine Arts/Painting and Graphics and have a passion for storys, biographies and mythologies.
