Zsuzsa Kollo


Zsuzsa Kollo utilizes the rich tradition of European Masters in her painterly works of portraiture and still life studies.It is a children’s world of play and enchantment encompassing strewn flowers, and gentle animals, a tapestry of Weirfesteria to wander longingly through the forest in search of mystery.
Originally trained at the School of Art, Budapest, Kollo completed further studies and teaching roles at the Art School UTAS. She now concentrates full time on her own practice. A highly regarded artist, Zsuzsa has achieved wide recognition including Finalist in numerous national awards including The Portia Geach Portraiture Prize, Blake and Doug Moran.
