Nadia Hlibka

Nadia Hlibka has been exhibiting nationally for over 30 years. A professional calligrapher, graphic designer and artist, her artwork blends many diverse international cultural histories, languages, and styles. Currently she enjoys folding and altering antique books and the conundrum that process creates.

Hlibka teaches a variety of calligraphy and collage workshops and is available for calligraphy commissions.

What’s not to love about collage? Mixing media, watching colors/textures/forms merge and emerge from the surface. My favorite technique is to use gel medium to create image transfers. These transfers I make myself from my own drawings, recycled paintings, photographs, or altered found images.
