Roma is a papercut artist, painter and illustrator from Melbourne Australia. Roma offers a look at unique styles across a range of mediums. Intricate patterning observed and imagined has become a hallmark throughout her work.

'There is an element of story in everything I do. Themes around my personal daily experiences are integrated with my observations of contemporary life in suburban Australia.'


Roma graduated in 1975 with a Diploma of Art and Design: Painting from Prahran College of Advanced Education (Melbourne)
