Leopoldine Mimovich and her husband, Ljuvice, migrated from Austria to Australia in 1949. Today Leopoldine is a very well known artist; all over Australia one can find her wood carved Madonnas, Crucifixes and Stations of the Cross can be seen in many churches. Australian Missionaries have taken Leopoldine's work to other countries and now orders come from Japan, China, India, and New Guinea. The couple live in the Melbourne suburb of Kew, where Leopoldine has her studio. Her husband, who until 18 months ago had his own delicatessen shop, has joined her. He carves bowls and containers. We are very happy now, as we can work together" Leopoldine said. Leopoldine working at a crucifix ordered by a Melbourne monastery.
