Ija Broka


Ija is a textile and mixed media artist who lives and works in Salisbury, Wiltshire.

Having read Pharmacology at a Medical University, and briefly working as a nurse, Ija's career moved towards teaching and textiles. Textiles has always been a part of Ija's life who since early childhood designed and made her own clothes.

For over fifteen years Ija has taught creative art to a wide range of students. In 2002 Ija obtained a joint BA in Education and Textiles. She believes that creativity can change us for the better, as well as being strong means of therapy. In 2016 Ija received a Diploma of Higher Education in Creative Arts from OCA.

Ija is a parter in ILiNi designs, a family business based in the South West of England. She now spends her days designing and making bags, accessories and home decor. In 2016 Ija has also joined Salisbury Group of Artists.

Artist Statement


Art is about telling a story. Tales connect lives with immediate surrounding, interweave with our emotional balance. Art captures our past, present and future, uniting pain and hope in something timeless. I use art like others use language, to describe what I see, feel and hear. The power to transcend time is of interest, like a composition that unites that first ignition of musician’s inspiration and performed by people very much alive and no doubt by those that are yet to come. There are certain people who transcend time and can be a powerful inspiration or a scar.
