I am a forester by profession. I obtained my bachelor’s degree at the University of Ljubljana. I am currently working on my master’s degree where I am exploring the role of European badger (Meles meles) as an ecosystem engineer. I have always felt connected to the forest and the animals that live there—this is a key reason why I decided to study forestry. I am also a hunter, which is our family tradition. When I am in nature I like to observe and take photographs of different animals, tree species and various compositions. Because my hobby is painting, I try to transfer these images and unique situations to paper and canvas. My artwork is mostly of wildlife and nature. In addition to art, I enjoy playing accordion and doing many sports, including ice hockey, basketball, football and hiking.
