Aleksandra Kucanski-Durmanovic was born in 1961 in ex-Yugoslavia. She attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Sarajevo and worked as a teacher of Visual Art and Art History since completing her studies until emigrating to Australia. During the Bosnian war she organized and conducted art groups for young people for a number of years, and, as part of the German humanitarian organisation, Vive Zene, worked as an Art Therapist with victims of the war.

After a hiatus from art, which included completing a Bachelor of Nursing Degree, she has decided to come back to the practice and currently produces works mostly in the mediums of oil and watercolour, based on portraits and genre scenes where the human figure dominates.
