Originally from Iceland, Hrefna has lived and studied in the UK for the past 14 years. After completing an MA in Children’s Book Illustration at Cambridge School of Arts, she spent many years working as an animator on various children’s TV series, before entering the exciting world of picture books.
Amongst other things, Hrefna likes watching wildlife documentaries and reading funny animal facts. She feels there is a lot to be learnt from animals. For instance, did you know that sea otters hold hands when they sleep to keep them from drifting apart?
When she’s not at her desk thinking up new characters and storylines, Hrefna likes baking cakes, riding her bike and going on mini adventures in the countryside.
