I was born in Poland and at a very young age I realized I had a strong desire to draw and paint. Mom took us to museums in Warsaw and Krakow to expose us to culture and I fell in love with paintings. My earliest inspiration was from the Polish painter Matejko. From there my training led me to paint and draw in the traditional style of the old masters, my biggest influences being Nicolai Fechin, John Singer Sargent, and Joaquin Sorolla. Great art inspires me. I am a student of the masters and I’m motivated to become great, too.
My art represents the richness of color and the juiciness of the brushwork that I am affected by when I see a great painting. I get immense pleasure in creating something worthwhile and when a piece is turning out well, when the composition, the clarity and harmony of color, the drawing and the values are all working well together that is when I am happiest.
My sense of time and the world around me fall away when I am in a creative zone. This is where everything comes together, my focus is good and the brushwork is going well. All the distractions disappear, it’s a great feeling, and I get a lot of joy from painting. So, it is through my paintings that I try to capture the beauty I see in the world, in the landscapes, cityscapes, flowers and the people, and pass that vision on to others.
