ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lidija was born and raised in Croatia where her passion for art began. While always an admirer of art, she ultimately chose to pursue an education in economics. In the early eighties, her preoccupation with art flourished upon arriving in California. What began as a hobby quickly turned into a passion.
Common people and little things that create our lives can be found in Lidija's work. Expressed in somewhat stylized and simplified form influenced by "naive" painters of her country, Lidija finds her own way. Form and texture are very important to her.
The sculptures are done in sculpture mix, with surface finished in B-mix. The color comes from clay stains and oxides, and firing is done at cone 5.
Lidija's interest in new materials, glass and bronze, has further enhanced her ability to express movement and emotion.
