Hi folks and thanks for stopping by my corner of the online art world.
My name is Agata Lawrynczyk and I am an art enthusiast. I love all forms of art although painting and drawing are my absolute favorite. I love it so I do it, simple as that. I always have, and I probably always will. I can do it for hours at a time, without even realizing that the whole day just flew by.
I live in Canada’s beautiful capital city Ottawa and recently graduated from Ottawa University with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Mechanical Biomedical Engineering (what a mouthful eh!). Before that, I completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology at the University of Western Ontario in my hometown of London, Ontario.
You may be thinking, where is this girls art education? My art education comes from my own trial and error from dabbling in all forms of arts and crafts since as far back as I can remember. You may think that painting and engineering have nothing in common, however, the way I see it, both disciplines require a lot of creativity and thinking outside the box. They overlap much more than one would think. Personally, I love both disciplines equally.
Inspiration for my work comes from the vibrant beauty of life all around us. I like to paint with a lot paint and a lot of color, usually with acrylics, although sometimes with oils too. You can check out my gallery here. I’m slowly starting to discover what “my style” of painting is and I hope you’ll join me along for the ride.
I consistently get requests from friends and family to “paint them something” and I have always (respectfully) declined these offers. Both for lack of time and because I don’t like parting with my art work. However, I’ve turned over a new leaf and now encourage these offers. I’m also trying to put my work out there into the community as best as I can. To see which original paintings are currently for sale, you can check out my online store here or if you’re interested in commissioning a painting, find more information about that here.
The goal of this blog is to showcase my art work, sell a few paintings, and hopefully inspire you to paint, or at the very least appreciate it.
