Michna-Nowak has featured in ‘Who’s Who - Women of the World’ for her contributions
Born in England to Polish parents, her work has been influenced by Polish culture,
fairy tales, theatre, circus and war. There is a strong feeling of isolation in her
works, partly due to her parents being outsiders in exile.
Michna-Nowak’s works start as a mono-print, a basic idea created on a metal sheet
with oil based paints or inks. after a process of re-printing the print may be over-painted
with gouache or acrylic paints to create a more solid effect. In her own words Michna-Nowak’s
art is “dramatic, arresting, thought provoking and, above all, original”.
