Biography

Jana Marková Höferová

It was an offer to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Ravenna that brought me to mosaics. Since my childhood I have loved the fine arts, which I studied at the Prosek Primary School of Arts in Prague, learning from the esteemed Hana Urbanová. I continued my studies at Gymnázium Na Pražačce, in a program focusing on extended art education, and later studied art theory at the Catholic Theological Faculty at Charles University in Prague majoring in History of Christian Art, all of which had led me to mosaics.
