Welcome To My World

Updated: Oct 4, 2019

I would like to introduce myself as an up and coming artist who is venturing out into a whole new world of possibilities. I was born on March 10th, 1958 to my Polish immigrant parents

in Detroit, Michigan. Growing up, I was considered the artist of the family. I always volunteered to participate in anything that would wet my creative appetite. I went to a tech school, mid high school, that was devoted to the the sciences and the arts in downtown Detroit, Michigan. I won an art scholarship to Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff, in my senior year at Westwood High, Mesa, Arizona. I spent most of my life in Arizona's high deserts in Prescott Valley and Camp Verde. I moved from Arizona to Fargo, North Dakota in 2013 with my husband because of his work. With work and parenting, I dabbled in the arts until I had an epiphany of sorts. It was at that point I dove in, back to my original passion of immersing myself in the arts. I worked as a nurse since 1997 but gave up nursing, 2017, to pursue my original passion for the arts. My hopes are that in spite of having mostly informal training and not the prestige of multiple degrees, I can find my niche within the fine art world. Please follow me on Facebook and Instagram and join me in my journey.

Just to provide an update, a year or so later, I am further along in my journey. I have participated in many art shows and won numerous awards. I have traveled to Frisco, Texas a couple of times for art shows and to Tampa, Florida at least three times. I have been busy since the first time I introduced myself. Besides art shows I have built a stunning website, opened 2 online stores and now working this blog. I am not quite the social media wiz but I am working on it. I am currently working on building up a body of work that will consist of mostly geometrical abstracts. My goal is to write up a proposal for a solo exhibition at a reputable gallery. That would be my dream. #emerging_artist, #art_blog, #art_commentary, #art_discussion, #artist_resume, #artist_life
