About Me - Katja

Welcome to the information about me! I’m sure you ended up on this page because you wanted to know a little more about the person behind all paintings and drawings before commissioning a portrait, or perhaps you are a fellow artist?

I'm a professional pet portrait artist and here is a little about me, my family and how I started out my career. You can use the images below to navigate the different pages. See photos of my family including my dogs, read my biography and much more.

Where I live

I live in the country side, not far away from Gothenburg in Sweden. The small city where I'm located is Mölndal. Even if it doesn't feel like it, it's not far away from the second biggest city in Sweden. My surroundings are forests, lakes and meadows which gives me a peace of mind, but it still takes only a 10 minutes drive to the big city which can be very handy sometimes.

My Family and Origin

I live here in a small building complex with my family which consists of my husband, kids and one dog. My parents don't live far away from us, only a few minutes drive from here. They live near a beautiful lake and that's also where I grew up. Probably you wonder where my Family originally came from because neither my name or appearance is Swedish!?

My grandparents moved from Slovenia to Sweden a long time ago, when Sweden needed workforces. They settled down in Sweden and that's also why me and my family still live here. My grandfather moved back to Slovenia though and that's also what we attend to do it the future. Well, we have a house waiting for us there.

My Interests

I grew up with dogs, cats, rabbits and parrots so animals have always been a big part of my life. Right now I have two dogs, two Boder Collies Chatt and Ace. I lost my old Tervueren Radier a few years ago. I train Tricks, Agility and Obedience among other things and we are competing in Obedience and Agility.

Read more about Chatt and Ace! I love music, fast cars and travel. I'm also very interested in soccer, but that's my son Daniel's fault. He is the one training soccer and made me interested :)
