I have been interested in art since being a youngster in Poland where it was a compulsory subject. I studied art and art history while attending Teacher’s College in Canada and after moving to the UK I studied art and design for two years at Whitney College (A Levels). After returning to Canada I took oil and watercolour painting courses from a number of teachers in Ottawa and the Quinte area. In 1995 I moved to southern Illinois and studied art for three years at an area College where I became particularly interested in the Impressionists, most especially Monet.I have displayed my paintings at a number of art shows, the annual Rednersville Road Art Tour and numerous juried exhibits.
My paintings now are a mixture of traditional and impressionistic oils, traditional watercolours and mixed media with attention to colour and texture. Recently I have been particularly interested in large contemporary pieces with a strong abstract theme. My paintings are displayed in private residences in Canada, the United States, Poland, Ukraine, and England.
