Johanna grew up in Kalmar and has her roots in Croatia. She spent her summers there as a child, but when the others were swimming, she sat inside and drew. Johanna works with both illustration and animation and today lives in Gothenburg with her girlfriend and her dog.
“I absolutely loved playing soccer at recess in middle school. But I was always picked last and it took me a long time to prove that I was good. So I know what it's like to fight against the wind. That's why I love to illustrate Zećira's story, her life and football dreams.”
