Petra’s Story

A Self-Taught Artist

Petra Kern is a self-taught artist based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. She joined Minted’s community of independent artists in 2013.

Pursuing Her Dream

At 19, Petra began a career as a journalist, working for teen’s, women’s, and travel magazines. She grew up drawing with her grandfather and always dreamt of a creative career. After her second child was born, she knew it was time to pursue her dream. She entered her first Minted challenge in 2013 and won an Editors’ Pick.

On Her Inspiration

“Ljubljana won the title of the greenest European capital in 2016. I’m a big nature lover and am always observing plants—their shapes and their colors, which amaze me. I constantly feel like a child in a candy store on my walks and hikes.”

On Creating “Evergreena”

“I loved how green and white mixed on a surface of the leaves, but after putting my greenery together, it felt too monochromatic. So I kept the acrylic base and added a watercolour greenery for variation.”

On the Minted Community

“Minted has given me confidence to continue producing my work. It has the no. 1 place in my heart. As a designer, work can be very lonely, and it’s always nice to see other designers who are also working in their pajamas and communicate with you and get feedback.”
