Adka (Andrea Jones), NC Member Since September 2009 Artist Statement Adka, who was born and raised in Slovakia, developed a love for drawing at an early age. Her art teachers rarely appreciated her eccentric art approach to subjects, which apparently did not meet the communistic ideal of conformity. Slovak folk art full of colorful ornaments and whimsies played an important role in her artistic development. She enjoys creating vibrant and playful surrealistic imagery loaded with energy, incorporating multiple dimensions and colors, which she has found appeals to a wide range of viewers. She's been told that her artwork is like "a romp through fantasia." or like "a colorful poetry." Known to many as "Adka's Art", which is borrowed from her childhood nickname 'Adka' her goal is to paint happy visions that bring joy to people and enrich the world.
Adka's original and uplifting artwork is exhibited nationally and internationally with various galleries and art networks such as The Artist Alley, SF; The Agora Gallery, NYC; Trevisan International Art, ITALY; Vivid Arts Network of New York; Studio Vogue Gallery, CANADA; The River Gallery, SLOVAKIA; Southern Museum of Fine Art, LV
Chosen for several art publications, art books and art magazines Adka is proud to offer her artwork to a growing collector base.
