Kat (Katerina) Lendacka was born and grew up in Litomerice, a rather picturesque small town approximately 40 miles north of Prague in what was once Bohemia. Litomerice abounds with architecture – Medieval, Baroque, Renaissance and Art Nouveau – which Kat says may have helped to form her artistic vision. Kat also cites other Czech influences as animators and illustrators such as Jiri Trnka, Jiri Salamoun and Josef Lada.
After a false start studying sciences at Charles University in Prague – and becoming increasingly at odds at what she saw as the intransigence of the Czech national character – she moved to the UK in the year 2000.
