Eva began her studies in Interior Architecture and Furniture Design at what is now Aalto University in Finland, where a variety of art forms were part of the discipline for the first four years and thus firmly planted in Eva’s heart. She then received her Masters Degree in Architecture and Design from the Royal College of Art in London.
Eva’s art moves pleasingly between figurative and abstract in a distinctive and enticing style. She is passionate about colour and light and excited about capturing a fleeting line, responding to and interpreting the emotion of a moment frozen in time.
Eva showed her artistic talent from a very early age, stimulated no doubt growing up surrounded by the glamour of Opera; her father was a professional opera singer and mother a multi-talented textile artist and jewellery designer.
Eva’s many interests and curiosity lead her naturally to create a diverse and versatile body of works. She possesses an intuitive ability to create many forms of art including drawing, painting, prints, reliefs and sculpture. Her artistic heroes are Picasso, Schjerfbeck and Nicholson amongst others.
Eva has received private commissions for her portraiture and sculpture and has shown her works in commercial galleries and public exhibitions, including Cork Street, London and The Hall of Science, New York, USA. Her works can be found in private collections in the UK and in Belgium, Finland, Spain , Sweden and the USA. Her paintings were preselected for the Columbia Threadneedle Art Prize in 2015.

Marko learnt his initial stone carving skills on the Mediterranean island of Gozo, Malta and studied sculpting techniques at the University of Hertfordshire. His main sculpting heroes are Arp, Brancusi, Hepworth and Gaudier-Brzeska. His sculptures are influenced by an innate love of natural forms and observed facets of human emotions, moving comfortably between representation and abstraction.
It’s been said that Marko’s sculptures “emit a spiritual calmness” which reflects both his deep passion and understanding of the art of stone carving. Ancient limestones and alabasters are given new life often sparking feelings of wonderment by the onlooker. Favouring the medium of stone, he also produces limited editions cast from his originals in bronze, aluminium and composite metal and stone resins. His inspiration is fuelled by an internal drive to experiment with both shape and form.
Marko exhibits in the UK and Internationally. He has exhibited with the Royal Society of Sculptors, the Royal Society of British Artists and the National Society in London on many occasions. He has also exhibited his sculptures in Germany, Gibraltar, Guernsey, Italy and the USA.
In 2009 Marko was elected a Member of the Royal Society of Sculptors. His bronze Eype Figure was preselected for the Threadneedle Art Prize 2014. His sculptures have consistently won accolades from Saatchi Art in USA and in 2016 Marko was awarded the Brian Mercer marble carving residency in Pietrasanta, Italy. He was selected to exhibit at the International Art and Culture Biennale in Rome, 2017-18.
Working from his studio in Dorset Marko’s sculptures can be found in public and private collections and gardens in the UK and in Australia, China, France, Finland, Germany, Italy, Malaysia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UAE and the USA. He has completed many private commissions in stone and bronze for clients in the UK, Europe and the USA. Examples of his public sculptures can be seen at Papworth Hospital, Cambridgeshire and Gadebridge Park, Hertfordshire.
