Ivana Kozlai Lauridsen, the illustrator behind Kozlau Atelier, is originally from Slovakia and has been living in Denmark for many years. 

She creates a diverse range of illustrations that carry along a personal story often with a hint of nostalgia.  She finds her inspiration from traveling and from daily moments that sink deep into her memory. Her  focus is on finding simple patterns and color schemes that evoke calmness and peacefulness. She likes to elevate ordinary things into minimal aesthetics.
