Lenka Pavlickova graduated from the Art school in Prague in 1992, where she studied graphic design. Then she found she could express herself artistically not only in carving marionettes but also in designing and creating costumes, often searching out interesting materials and hand painting her own silk. In the time she has been creating marionettes, she has been recognized around the world for her fine work, which has led to many articles being written in magazines and newspapers and interviews for CNN, the BBC and a guest appearance on the 70th anniversary edition DVD of Pinocchio. She now lives between Prague and England which expanded her knowledge of other cultures and traditions in puppet theatre and has been inspirational in some of her latest work.
