My paintings start with a color idea and then I develop the composition in which the color is the primary subject. I am a colorist. My art reflects my experiences and feelings. Balance, vibrancy and simplicity are my primary goals which I try to achieve through landscape and plain air paintings. My work romanticizes places that might not seem noteworthy but are beautiful in those short moments when they exist. My goal is for my work to inspire optimism and to paint good living pictures. I was born in communist Poland and now I live in Chicago ill. My art education started in Poland where I was taking lessons as a child in state sponsored after school program. It continued in United States through high school, Wright College, Oakton College and School of Art Institute in Chicago. I have been in numerous shows and I have been involved in curatorial projects especially in alternative spaces. In the nineteen nighties my works have been based on socio political themes mainly speaking about corporate culture. For the past 10 years I have been interested mainly in color and how it influences the human perception. The latest interest is in how a color scheme influences the canvas and the space adjacent to the artwork. *Awards *Polish Artís Club 77th Annual Exhibit 1st Place Award 2013* *Elk Grove Village Art Center 2012 Award of Excellence* *Oak Park Art League Honorable Mention Award* Artmaijeur 2012 Silver Award Artmaijeur 2009 Silver Award Paderewski Association 2007 Award * One Person Shows * Atheneum Theatre, Chicago Ill Nov-Dec 2011 Omega Business Center Gallery Chicago Ill 2008 Hortex Euro-restaurant gallery, Chicago ILL May 2006 Ukrainian Museum in America, Chicago ILL May 2003 Office of Attorney General of Illinois, Chicago IIL November 2002 Gallery M Golden Book Store, Chicago ILL Multiple Shows *Group Shows* Elk Grove Village Artist League Multiple Shows Buffalo Grove Artist League Multiple Shows Highland Park Art Walk, Ill July 2012 Phantom Gallery, Chicago Ill, Feb-Dec 2012 Elastic Arts, Chicago Ill, Sept 2011 International Arts Group Show, Berlin Germany July 2011 Polish Artís Club Exhibit @ Polish Museum in America , Chicago Ill 2009,2010, 2012 &2013 Emily Oaks Nature Center, Skokie Ill 2009 & 2012 Our Generations, Chicago Ill 2009 Polish Museum in America, Chicago ILL February 2007 & march 2006 Utrech gallery, Chicago ILL Multiple Shows High Risk Gallery, Chicago Ill 2008 Gallery M Golden Book Store, Chicago ILL Multiple Shows Stollizo Gallery, Chicago ILL Multiple Shows Harrstein Gallery, Des Plaines ILL Multiple Shows Inside Art Gallery, Chicago ILL June 1999 Woman's club of Evanston, Evanston ILL April 1999 Collections Ernesto Alonso Estupinan Quintero Mayor of Esmaraldas, Ecuador Edward L.
