My love of Egg Artistry began in the early 1980’s after reading a one page article in a craft magazine, which spurred me on to find out as much as I could on the subject.

Egg Art has been around for many hundreds if not thousands of years in varying forms and many different countries.  By far the most famous Egg Artist is, of course, Fabergé, the Russian Jeweller, but he did only use precious metals to make his eggs with precious stones to adorn them with no sign of a real egg shell.

I joined the Egg Crafters Guild of Great Britain which had been initiated by Joan Cutts MBE and then proceeded to teach myself, as seminars and workshops were held in the north of England rather than the south, where I lived.

In the main, my work has been on a commission basis and I only began exhibiting during the 7 years I spent in Bangkok, Thailand.  This led to demonstrating and teaching on a weekly basis, which I enjoyed but left me with little time to concentrate on my own work.

Since Moving to Cyprus in 2004, the opportunity to create has been largely on hold due to several excursions overseas to Bahrain, Dubai and Copenhagen, during which time my interest turned to Stamp Art, a much more portable creative activity.

As we now seem to be ensconced back home in Polemi I can now concentrate more on my first love creating for the Angela Rose Collection.

Snezana Bujosevic, born the 22nd August 1966 in Belgrade, Serbia, is a self-taught artist, and currently resides in Nicosia, Cyprus. Her talent was discovered in her earlier years of childhood, but did not develop it until the year 2001, when she moved to the island of Cyprus. She then uncovered her abilities and started putting her ideas on paper and canvas, and today works with matured, more professional manner, making art of her life. Being mainly self-taught, she develop a more personalized expressive way of painting various subjects, from figurative to still life.

She is an expressive painter of various subjects ranging from figurative to still life. She paint in a variety of styles from realism to abstraction. Most of her work is done in oil. Her realism work is characterized by strong contrast of light and shadow, dynamic composition and vibrant colours. She has always been enthralled by fine art, where she found most her inspiration generated from. Being mostly a self taught artist, she find experimentation a productive way of expressing her ideas on canvas, with the help of numerous art courses in various techniques. She has much benefited over the years from studying the human form and body.

Much of her work is displayed in numerous galleries all around Cyprus and Serbia, and much of it found a home in many of my customers’ homes’.

She is currently a lasting member of many art associations, through which much of her work is displayed.

E.N.A.Z. (Society of Self-taught artists in Cyprus)

Cyprus Visual Arts Association

Cyprus Art Association – Technotropio

In the last two years, she has had two solo exhibitions, as well as many joined exhibition.
