Born in Belgrade in 1952, Ljubinka Kovacevic-Mimovic moved to England in 1967 where she enrolled at Starbridge Art College. These formative years had a major impact on her artistic development, which continued from 1973-1978 at the Academy of Applied Arts in Belgrade. There she studied under the Mediala painter, Sinisa Vukovic. Ljubunka taught Art in Belgrade from 1978-1982, before moving back to London.Starting from a traditional form of painting through years of homages to old masters and familiar subject matter I began to depart from the targeted expression of my criteria to a different realm of values.Maintaining the criteria only on a subconscious level my work began to engage in bridging the waves, the spaces and emotions of contemporary and future sensations.I hope that I can say that nowadays I paint my way - discovering each painting by "stealing it from the light of my consciousness".
Her first London exhibitions were at Birkbeck College, the Posk Gallery then many others. In 1990 she instigated an exhibition at Selfridges to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. Her work was shown at the 1992 Edinburgh Festival in an exhibition organised by Richard de Marco.,
