Ivana Zivic Jerkovic was born in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina in1979. She finished her graduate and post-graduate painting studies at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Belgrade in 2008. She has been a member of Association of Visual Artists of Serbia since 2006.
Ivana is a painter whose inspiration comes from nature and from her constant creation of new works of art. Her motifs are rolling green hills, sea shores, ploughed fields under blue skies, grandiose tree crowns through which the sunlight shines, multi-coloured fields of flowers, and more. Her figuration is concise, stylized, and her colouring is bold and rich.
Looking at Ivana’s works restores optimism in the viewer and creates a feeling of a need to become closer to nature as the sources of infinite beauty and energy.
