There is a visible connection to certain emotions and the need to be in nature or with nature, Anna Matykiewicz says.
She finds inspiration in different faces that connect with those emotions and convey the story behind them.
“I like to balance between realism and abstract in my art, sort of a state of lucid dreams when you know that you are creating but not always in control of it,” Anna says.
“I became an artist because of my natural need for creating and I have been painting since I can remember, although beginnings weren’t exactly easy for me,” Anna says.
As an emigrant, she arrived in Ireland and worked many jobs not related to art. But in 2012, she gathered enough courage and to leave a full-time corporate job to follow her dreams.
“Don’t think about making art, just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they are deciding, make even more art.”
― Andy Warhol
