Superbly accomplished

Tony Glenville, New Icons of Fashion Illustration

Total technical control (and knowledge of figure drawing). Totally original reflecting the fashion of the moment.

Tony Glenville, New Icons of Fashion Illustration

Petra Dufkova is a perfect example of a fashion illustrator… be it a jar of cream or a celebrity.

Tony Glenville, New Icons of Fashion Illustration

Amongst others she won 2008 the Best Illustration Award with her collection at the China Fashion Week in addition to numerous design awards. Her illustration is a combination of traditional method and modern look with focus on fashion, beauty and lifestyle.
With loose and free marks but also very precise line of her paintbrush and a dash of dirt, she manages to put her own dimension of lightness and presence into her work no matter how technical the theme, always injecting emotion along the way. Since 2002 she lives in Munich, Germany.
