IRENE NOWICKI, Encino, CA Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement "I OPENED THE DOORS OF PERCEPTION AND THE VISIONS FELL OUT" ~ Irene Nowicki ~
Although mostly self taught, Irene's formal art education includes private instructions and studies at Pierce College where she received the Leventhal Achievement Awards in both Fine Art and Graphics. Additionally, Irene has attended art classes at Every Woman's Village, studied under Bert Miripolsky and attends on-going workshops.
"Ever since I can remember I have lived in two worlds: the practical left brain of logic and the mystical right brain of creativity. My Art is the bridge between these two worlds that expresses what I am. My visions are Infinity trying to share itself and the Messages in the art come from beyond my finite self. Some are vague; some are crystal clear. I love using bright colors in order to share my joy in being alive. I am a true artist ~ the full circle of Creator-Creation-Observer. In sharing my paintings with the public, I let go of my Visions and set my spirit free." Irene's paintings have appeared in the Los Angeles Times and the Daily News. "Irene is a Visionary Artist who blends psychic abilities with her natural talent as a fine artist to channel these unique images." says Joshua Townsend of the T.V. show: Performing Artists From Around the World.
