I was born and educated in Poland and settled in Canada in 1979.

My painting is inspired by nature, particularly the power and richness of the North American landscape. I work primarily in the Ottawa area, focusing on the banks of the Ottawa River and the forests of the Gatineau Hills, aiming to capture both its timeless grandeur and the ever-changing moods of its snow-banks, trees, sunsets.

I paint "alla prima," blending the pigments together on the canvas using a palette knife. This technique allows textures to evolve naturally, and permits a loose, spontaneous style and in turn evokes the tactile quality of my subjects.

The goal of my painting is to evoke the mood of a natural setting and to capture the feeling of I am captivated by the creative process of painting  and am compelled by the spirituality that overtakes me when contemplating a landscape. I want my art to be positive, free, beautiful, and romantic--something you cannot live without.
