Art for Ania is a personal journey of wholeness, self-discovery and spiritual fulfillment. Through her artwork, she continues to discover her authentic self, her purpose and meaning for her life.
Born and raised in Krakow, Poland behind the Iron Curtain of Communism, Ania felt a great divide between the luxurious, colorful and rich beauty of her native culture and the imposed “sameness” and dullness of the oppressive Communist Regime. She often escaped the dreariness of her everyday life to Krakow’s Old Town Art District where she wandered the halls of spectacular churches and galleries and looked upon works of famous Polish and international artists.
Revealing her innermost feelings and thoughts through her paintings, Ania creates an emotional connection with those who see her work. With her unique and transformative style of art, her passionate, expressive and raw energy, she has gained many admirers of her work. And with her deeply personal and open engagement, many of her supporters are now her friends.
