Professional Storyteller is a network for people who work in the field of oral storytelling. Please write a brief paragraph about your work.
I was born in Ljubljana, and I'm living in a small town near the sea, Piran. Story-telling is a familiy tradition. My grandmother Ivana and my father Miroslav were excellent storytellers. I studied ethnology and anthropology at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana and received a master's degree. I finished also the training seminar of gestalt pedagogy (grade A) at the Faculty of theology in Ljubljana.
I'm telling stories for more than twenty years: in the libraries, kindergartens, schools, retirement homes, old people's day centers, cultural centers, centers for people with special needs, festivals, kamishibai festivals and so on. In the 2017 I participated in the Festival interculturel du conte Paroles de conteurs on the Vassivière island in France, in the 2018 in Festival della fiaba (Castro dei Volsci, Italia) and Festival du conte (Fresquiennes & Caux, France).
I'm collecting, recording, transcribing and publishing life histories. I'm also collecting, recording, transcribing and publishing folk tales. I have translated many folk tales from english, german, italian, spanish, french and czech language.
In the 2014, I discovered kamishibai and start to tell stories also with illustrations, that I made by myself.
