Shaz Ozkaya

Always been a creative soul, itching to get to my Art lessons in primary school and finding joy studying this vast subject, from painting styles to learning about many artists. Artists who have influenced my passion for art are Frida Kahlo, Franz Marc, Wassily Kandinsky and many other.

 

My biggest inspiration was my father, he repaired oriental carpets, a master of his trade. I was always surrounded growing up by culture, textures, colours and patterns. I guess my roots play a big part in this, coming from an Armenian background.

 

I work as a secretary in Richmond, however, my passion is to paint and make things, from Cactus pots to jewellery and digital art.
