» About » Edwina Pellikka

Edwina Pellikka earned a Master’s Degree in Fine Art, Painting and Printing in London, England.

She attended Chelsea School of Art; Byam Shaw School of Drawing, Painting, and Printing; and London College of Printing (where she studied photography).

She was then chosen as one of a select group of exceptionally talented artists and musicians to receive a special grant by the Inner London Education Authority, which afforded her the opportunity to spend a post-graduate year working in her own studio space at St. Catherine’s Dock.

Following this prestigious opportunity, Edwina began a two and a half year apprenticeship at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden in dyeing, printing, and breakdown of fabrics and costumes, during which time she achieved Master Craft status.

Upon first arriving in America, Edwina worked the theatre circuit, starting with “A Christmas Carol” for ACT in San Fransisco, then multiple shows for Berkley Rep., the UC-Berkley Theatre Department, Denver Center Theatre Company, La Jolla Playhouse, and Ashland Shakespeare Festival.

Following a brief return to London’s Royal Opera House, Covent Garden for “Don Giovanni”, Edwina was called by LucasFilm for a 9-month stint dyeing fabric, hand airbrushing, and aging all the monsters for his third film in the Star Wars series, “Return of the Jedi”, which ultimately afforded her the opportunity to open A Dyeing Art in Los Angeles.

Edwina is a frequent lecturer, and offers seminars and master classes at top universities and art schools around the world.
