Genna Wise began her artistic career in 2007 after finishing a course at London’s Slade Collage of Fine Art. She then began selling her paintings through one of Covent Garden’s art galleries. Having explored expression via a variety of mediums, she then went to Orsoni in Venice to learn the art of mosaic. She mastered the traditional method of cutting Italian glass using a hammer and hardy.
She soon realised that mosaic art was her creative passion in life and from then on her career came to life. She was quickly noticed by the Chief Executive of the worldwide publishing company Opus Media and was commissioned to create pieces for a number of high profile clients. These included HRH Prince Turki of Saudi Arabia, Sachin Tendulka, Nelson Mandela and The Vatican.
Genna found that it was important to create a visually rich and nourishing environment to work in. Her studio is based at her home, a cottage in the tranquil countryside of West Yorkshire. Here she began experimenting in mosaicing her indoor wooden furniture. ‘There is nothing like a handmade, soul-inspired creation'. I love the idea of having a fully functioning piece of art in my home that is adored and used every day.’ She has an eclectic style, ranging from classic contemporary to distinctive ‘naivety’ with quirky creatures.
