Joanna is a Contemporary Abstract Artist living and working in Los Angeles.

Her work is a juxtaposition of two worlds, those of Art and Psychology. It's a manifesto of a soul seeking meaning and purpose. Raw, authentic and relevant. 

 

Born and raised in Poland, she moved to London, UK in her early twenties to study and practise Psychology. At the peak of her career, she reconnected and rededicated herself to a deep rooted passion for Art.

 

"Art has always been my refuge. It’s a passion and a compulsion. A free expression of the soul being disciplined by the mind. The process itself can be liberating and healing" 

Joanna believes that art touches the soul, nourishes and creates the landscape for growth and connection. Her artistic mission is clear: to take a viewer on a journey of self-discovery; to connect on an emotional, intellectual and spiritual level as well as to provoke, to shake, to elicit some cerebral or emotional activity. 

 

"Art is more than an expression of life. It's the universal language of the soul. It's a prism of everything that is both real and imaginary. It's the only thing that does not need to be measured, compared and understood."

Her work is multilayered and textured. She works outside of any prescribed system. As a process driven artist, she developed her own unique style and techniques that generate a sense of presence and potency. She uses her own combination of materials to create texture.

 

"Painting, like life, like anything is a journey. It's not about the destination. Destination has been already set, whether we like it or not. The journey is ours".
