"Affectionately Yours” By Ursula Korneitchouk

All of Ursula's pieces on display are available for purchase. 100% of proceeds from every sale helps fund the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes Capital Campaign.

Ursula Korneitchouk was born and raised in Germany, then established a home in Madrid/Spain where she studied languages with the aim of becoming a literary translator.

After immigrating to the United States with her family, Ursula became an art historian and worked for eleven years at the Cleveland Museum of Art as well as nine additional years at the Cleveland Institute of Art. It was at that time that Ursula fell in love with the Nature Center’s trails and mission.

Retired and living in Cleveland Heights, Ursula not only continues to enjoy writing, and translating, but for the past decade she has also been busy creating intricate colored paper collages as a self-proclaimed "snippeteer".

Having numerous relatives all over Europe, she would use them to produce "self-hatched" reproduced greeting cards for birthdays or for the holidays for the past decade. The original collages, however, remained hidden in a drawer until very recently, when she decided to have them exhibited and sold as little art treasures to benefit the Nature Center. All proceeds from her work support the Nature Center’s Capital Campaign.
