Medium: Acrylic and Mixed Media
I do mixed media on canvas. Artwork description: I lay down up to 7 layers of acrylic paint. Dragging, smearing and scrapping are all part of the process. The process becomes mostly unconscious and as the process flies along I hold on and sometimes I lead. The end result is a vibrant, colorful painting.
Born in Poland. My love affair with arts started in pre-school. I started painting at age six. I was studying music, art simultaneously until the age of fourteen. Graduated of Nursing College with honors and my name got included in a “Gold Book”. Jan.1982 I came to live in the United States. Sept. 1984 I went to work as RN. I have always wanted to be an artist, but life became challenging at this point because of this new job, and a two-month-old daughter. I faced these life challenges, and create a strength that allowed me to take on any other difficult situations to follow. Also at that time, I became more interested in learning about acrylic paint. So in order to understand acrylics, I attend Yuba College art painting classes. I had workshops with Jim Bertram, Ann Baldwin, and Judith Hale – student Helen Frankenthaler. Today I am an artist, an artist who is continuously discovering, creating and enjoying art. My artwork is included in the books, magazines, and newspapers. My accolades include signature membership in National Collage Society, Inc. with headquarters in Huston, Ohio. To obtain signature status one must be accepted into three years of juried competitions. I had 131 juried competitions and over 67 awards. My artwork is included in many private and important collections. My artwork has been exhibited in galleries and museums across the US.
