Svetla Radivoeva was born and raised in Bulgaria, and currently lives in California. She has a strong passion for drawing since she can remember. Early on Svetla realized that she wanted to be able to breathe life into her drawings. She took a path to become a CG character animator and has been working as such since 2007 and with more focus on feature animation work since 2011. Her experience working in this environment has helped her understand the art of storytelling. Svetla's passion for drawing never left, and she has continued to draw as much as she could. She has had the opportunity to author and illustrate a children’s book, do book cover design and work on visual character design. This has allowed her to understand the world of illustration more vividly than ever before.
