Jana Vizjak

She was born on 30 March 1956 in Ljubljana. After she finished secondary school, she continued her education at the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana (1975-1979) – drawing studies under the mentorship of Prof. Gabrijel Stupica and painting studies under the mentorship of Prof. Janez Bernik. Under him, she also specialised in painting between 1979 and 1982. In 1991, she received a DAAD scholarship (Deutsche Akademische Austauschdienst). From 1991 to 1993, she was a DAAD scholar, and a painting student at the Arts Academy (Kunstakademie Düsseldorf) under Prof. Gotthard Graubner. From 1993 to 1996, she continued her studies as a guest student at the Arts Academy in Düsseldorf under Prof. Gotthard Graubner.

In 2005, she was presented with an award by the senate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Ljubljana for her prominent art works. She has received many public orders and established herself as a great portrait painter. She was involved artistically in several publications. In 2006, the senate of the University of Ljubljana gave her the title of Assistant Professor of Painting. Jana Vizjak reflects her work in words and in theory. Since 1982, she has been living and working as a freelance artist.
