About the author
Karolina Anna Grenczyk is a mermaid, an animal lover and a nature lover. So, if she had fur or scales, she would like to live outside! Unfortunately, she is neither an otter nor a fish...
She was born in the enchanted city of Krakow in Poland, where she spent the first seven years of her life. Her kindergarten was even located at the foot of Wawel Castle. A castle in which all the Polish kings were crowned and laid to rest.
Besides her love for reading, writing, and swimming, she has always drawn. After high school, therefore, she immediately started her studies at the Willem de Kooning Academy. For two years, she devoted herself to illustration but then decided to study English Language and Literature at Leiden University instead. This is where her talent for writing truly began to blossom.
After working in education for several years, she picked up drawing and writing again. She has had a few exhibitions in Rotterdam already and can often be spotted drawing around the city centre. In cafes and in the park, she captures people in her sketchbooks, while usually remaining unnoticed. Other themes in her work are, you guessed it, animals and nature.
