The Tucson Gallery Asked Each Artist The Same Questions To Get To Know Them Better
Where did you grow up?
Aneta grew up in the town of Hradec Kralove, an hour away from the capital Prague, where they later moved. Her mom worked in finances, and her father was a journalist. When she was a child, she spent a lot of time at her cottage in the countryside, where they grew food and were surrounded by forests and nature. She would climb trees, shoot with an airgun, and play cowboys and Indians with her brother and friends.

When did you know that you would be an artist?
Aneta’s journey into writing began unexpectedly at the age of 22 when a tarot reader pointed out the “Writing” card at the center of her life journey. Initially skeptical, as her background was in business and economics, the seed was planted. The idea for the first book, Prague Green City Guide, which she co-authored, came to fruition later, marking a significant milestone in her writing journey.
What is your favorite media to work with?
Her inspiration to become a writer stems from a deep-seated passion for storytelling, recognizing it as the oldest method through which people connect, share, and exchange information. She firmly believes in the transformative power of books to inspire and enrich lives, fostering intelligence and understanding. Additionally, she sees writing, especially keeping a diary, as a therapeutic practice that helps navigate life’s challenges. Both writing and reading serve as invaluable tools for personal growth and self-discovery.
What do you do when you’re not doing the voodoo that you do?
Apart from writing, she enjoys traveling, sports, exploring, and learning about psychology, business, marketing and literature.
