Introduction

My name is Ladislava Pechova, I was born in Prague and I‘m a graduate of VOUŠ Václava Hollara in Prague
I work as a freelance artist, mainly as an illustrator and author of children books. I also deal with graphics and typography. In the year 1991 I’ve illustrated my first book. Since then it has been published over fifty book titles with my illustrations. I was honored that my pictures followed texts of well known authors Jan Vodňanský and Zdeněk Svěrák. I‘ve also created several of my own author’s publications. Some titles were published even abroad – Hungary, Russia, Slovakia. In the year 2008 I was awarded the prize for an exceptional success – 362 ths. sold books with my illustrations by Fragment publishers  In the year 2011, by the same publishers, my illustrations were awarded the prize for long-term sold title „When the Little Beaver Goes to Sleep“. Cover illustration on toothpaste Odol Perlička for children became my famous graphic design work. I’m also very proud to be chosen by Czech Post as an author of the graphic design Easter postage stamp 2020.
My leisure time activities are stand up paddling and cosplay.
