Petra Hilbert's Profile

About

Born in 1977 in Bratislava to an artistic family. Even as an art school student, she illustrated books written by her father and later on also by other authors, for which she has received several IBBY Awards. A strong urge to express herself led her into writing her own piece called „The Ballad of the Heart“ in 2011. In this gentle story, she connected soft black-and-white illustrations with poetry.
Her watercolor illustrations are inspired by floral themes, capturing the author´s relations – with nature and humans. Her illustrations somewhat contain a „second plan“. There´s a divine face hiding behing a flower, while there´s a tea pot sitting on a window sill - maybe a random one, but maybe it belonged to someone you loved. Petra Hilbert is a storyteller of small stories about simple things.
