Patrycja IveyPainting [email protected]
Patrycja Ivey, a native of Poland, moved to the United States in 2004. She enjoyed drawing and painting from an early age, but art materials were scarce in a little town in a communist country. Childhood behind the Iron Curtain was drab and devoid color. Representing the immense change in her life, her paintings are now bright, color intense and full of joy. She paints a variety of subjects in acrylic and oil, typically inspired by her surroundings, travels and interests — from ocean animals, beach scenes and winter wonderlands to classic cars and war planes.
