Ina Dederer, a painter with Russian roots, spent her childhood in the northern German city of Bremen before moving to Zollikon in Zurich, Switzerland in 2007. Her drawings and oil paintings were exhibited and presented in earlier years, during her days at the art institute where she was enrolled. Today, this internationally-active artist continues to work in her studios in Spain, Monaco and Switzerland.

 

Inspired by her many travels to world museums and always on the lookout for creative new techniques, Ina creates works whose themes are the beauty of human evolution, the grace of nature and the art of great masters.
