CONTRAdiction by Joanna Tyka Jane Sandelin Gallery.

so is my life
so is my art
once abstract, once impressionistic landscape
once big, once smaller
once with money, once without
but always happy.

Creating a painting make[s] me very happy
and I would like for everyone to feel it around my art.

[I] consider myself very lucky that I always could proceed [with] my art as a full time job since finishing Academy of Fine Arts with master degree in 1978, and lucky too, to follow my athletic / healthy passion since I [can] remember.

[I've] lived in 5 different places in the world, speak 4 languages fluently and 3 on comunication level... and always lived to paint and paint[ed] to live. It's my biggest life success.

My other life passion, sailing / past national Chempion in Poland, member of FBYC in Deltaville, VA, skiing, cycling, which make[s] a perfect balance for long, solit[ary] working/painting hours.

You [will] find my art in private collection[s] around the world Japan, Singapour, Norway, Germany, Poland, Spain, HK,Kenia, England Austria, Sweden, Belgum, Holland, US, Canada
In Richmond VA in Dominion, Senate of Virginia, [and] in lot of cooperate office[s] and private houses." - Joanna Tyka
