Zina Kurtschenko

Zina is a multi-skilled artist born in Victoria, Australia.

She's best known for her quirky paintings of Madonnas, Saints and Babushkas inspired by her European ancestry and fueled by the humour she inherited.

She first studied Fine Art at RMIT Melbourne, and later completed a BA in Fine Art majoring in Metal and Drawing at Monash University.

Throughout the '90's, her paintings, metal and ceramic art were exhibited at leading Melbourne craft galleries -  Distilfink, Makers Mark and Crowded House.

Now settled in stunning S.E.Tasmania, Zina is inspired by the delightful, local, quirky characters that are gradually shifting into her paintings.

Gallery Salamanca also stock Zina's range of greeting cards and prints. Guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!
