Barbara grew up on the suburb of Budapest next to a little forest. She was always drawing as early as kindergarten, with her colorful fingers and the scribbled bits and bobs, and she always knew she was an artist.
Barbara graduated as an animation director at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design Budapest and began working as an art director, character and background designer for a television series and some short films, but she always knew she wanted to spend more time as an illustrator. “I have always had a big passion for creating worlds with my characters, making up how they are working together within an atmosphere, what they feel, and what is the story behind them.”
Now she is living between England and Hungary and misses her big ginger cat when she is not with her, along with her Johnny Cash discs. Since joining Bright, Barbara has illustrated many books for clients such as Parragon, Little Bee, Parragon, Maverick, Yoyo, Top That!, Oxford University Press, Penguin Workshop, Simon and Schuster etc. https://cargocollective.com/barbarabakos
