Born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, I grew up among great art and architecture. As a child I spent hours drawing and painting with my grandfather and browsing the numerous museums and galleries.
Feeling disillusioned with the restraints put on the art community by the communist government; I immigrated to Austria in the spring of 1987. Austria embraced the dissident artists, and I was encouraged to paint with a brighter vision of the future.
Later, fueled by my sense of adventure and love of travel, I left Europe for Boulder, Colorado. At the University of Colorado in Boulder I was introduced to the art of stone carving and immediately fell in love with it. I also became involved with the Marble/marble Institute of Colorado and participated in stone carving symposiums.
Eventually I moved to Loveland, Colorado, in order to learn about the bronze casting process and incorporate it into my work. I found great support for my work in the Loveland art community.
Inspired by my love of life, my sculptures are filled with emotion, femininity and sensuality. I work in both stone and bronze, and my sculptures can be found in collections throughout the United States and Europe.
Recently I was honored to have my sculpture “Spiral Dance” included in the book “The Sculpture Reference Illustrated” by Arthur Williams.
