I am a professional mixed media abstract expressionist artist. Land and seascapes form the majority of my portfolio, however, I also occasionally do figurative artwork as well. Before meeting my husband in 2005, I worked as a professional artist for a studio in Lublin, Poland for 10 years. In 2005 I moved to Cambridge, England, where I had various exhibitions in local venues. In 2009 we moved to Switzerland where I continued to develop my style and portfolio for 6 years. I now live with my family near Madrid, Spain.
Over the past 15 years I have lived in four countries and am passionate about travelling. I am particularly fascinated in transient phenomena and my aim is to create artwork that captures a sense of the ephemeral beauty found in the unrepeatable moments of time that make us feel glad to be alive. Organic textures, light and natural beauty are fundamental to my art.
I will normally work on at least two or three canvases at the same time. As I work on the first composition, I'll often find a detail or a technique that I'll want to expand on and will begin a second canvas, and so on, with the degree of abstraction tending to increase in each iteration.
Every painting is built up from multiple layers of acrylics, watercolours and pastels. In many of my landscapes I also include gold leaf as a way to express the heat and luminous intensity of the sun; I adore the potential interplays of texture, reflectivity and colour that this mixed media approach allows me. I often use watercolours to tint the metallic reflections, which leads to the colours changing continually with the viewer's perspective and the lighting conditions.
