"Who are you?"

"To define is to limit."

-Oscar Wilde

and one of the birds she was


dashing against the air


trying to break its stillness



iz ptica - from birds





Hello! My name is Kaja Kajfež. I'm a freelance illustrator, visual storyteller, and creative thinker, probably better known as iz.ptica in the realms of the internet.


I'm 27 years old and I've been working as a graphic designer and later illustrator since my early teens. My artistic passion led me to get a degree in the field by finishing 'Multimedia, Design and Application' study at University North in Varazdin, Croatia.

In 2017 I established my own little studio that mainly focuses on children's book illustration, lettering, surface pattern design and design of visual content. As a freelance illustrator, I have had the opportunity to collaborate on various projects in a number of different fields with both small and independent as well as medium to large companies.


My passion for illustration and drawing, together with my education in the field and years of experience have enabled me to work what I love to do the most - create illustrations that tell stories, communicate effectively through imagery and create images that evoke emotion.


Besides my work, I love to take long walks in nature, explore different historical periods, scroll through old books, listen to online concerts, spend time with my dog and relax with a huge cup of tea.


If you have a project in mind I'd be more then happy to hear from you so feel free to contact me.
