About the Artist – I’ve been an artist at heart all my life. Having an architect as a father while growing up in the metropolis of Warsaw, Poland, greatly impacted my creative pursuits. After studying architecture myself. I realized that drawing and painting were natural and enjoyable for me.
Sometimes I use soft pastel colors and other times I use bright, almost unreal colors to achieve a very strong contrast between light and shadow. My goal is to portray on paper and canvas the wetness of the rain, the thickness of the fog, and the heat of a sunny day. I do not want to dictate the mood or impose a specific response from the viewer. After looking at one of my paintings, one person may be left with a feeling of loneliness while another may feel hopeful. I wish to leave that private matter to the viewer.
I have used numerous media including acrylics, oils, and pastels, but I keep coming back to transparent watercolor as my first choice. You can see more of my art and find contact information at www.magdapaintsoregon.com.
