2-D Designer/Artist

Berti is a 2-Dimensional Designer/Artist living in a lovely Village called Kimpton in Hertfordshire. She studied as a mature Student at The Hatfield University, graduating with a BA (Hons). Working from her Loft Studio and taking inspiration from mainly an outdoor nature, from home, Greece, Cornwall and things she likes along the way. Creating work with a strong hands-on approach and whatever creative mood she is in, her work reflects both rich texture, vibrant and sometimes earthy colours using different media, including collage and ink.

Berti's concern is not to reproduce a likeness, but to capture the characteristics of her subject. Approaching landscape in the same manner as still life, breaking down what she sees until the composition is right. Simplicity in it's raw form is the ultimate goal.

Inspired by the great Artists Patrick Heron for his bold use of colour and Jean Michelle-Basquiat for his grafitti style, elements of this can be seen in her work.

Another passion is to design cards and wrapping paper and making bits from otherwise thrown away things, such as feathers, tins and spent cartridges.

Berti has exhibited extensively since 2000.
