Meet the maker Giuliana Lazzerini

I was born in Tuscany, Italy. I gained a Master of Arts from The Istituto D'Arte Stagio Stagi in Pietrasanta and studied painting for four years at The Accademia Di Belle Arti in Carrara. I am inspired by my childhood experiences in Tuscany, where I spent much of my time in my father's mosaic studio. Within the studio I grew a passion for colour and geometry. After graduating I moved to the U.K. where I became also inspired by the natural world and the British landscape working in various mediums such as Painting and print making (Linocuts, Etchings and Monotypes).
I have exhibited widely including Solo Exhibitions in Rome, Florence, Milan, London,Glasgow, Leeds & Michigan,U.S.A. My work has been published for clients including IKEA, WH SMITHS, WATERSTONES, KORSCH VERLAG & HIBELL ART.
