I was born in Poland. From early childhood I liked to observe nature and to draw and paint it. I studied art in Art High School. I have gotten my bachelor degree in teaching. I worked for twenty five years with elementary school children and high school youths as art teacher, and I loved it. A few of my students graduated Art College. I worked few years as a youth counselor.
Art is very important in my mind and my life, but mainly because I admired incredible beauty of God’s creation around me. In my art I focus attention on the show of light, shadows and colors, mutual relations of simple objects like flowers and small creatures which are composed in shape and color. I use oil painting, this classic technique allows me to show and stop in time beauty and magic of one special moment which passes and disappears with changing light. I express myself not only with paint but with clay. I craft pottery and decorate it with floral and animal elements, but in the native style. I like not only painting, but philosophy, history, traveling and gardening. I have lived in Honesdale PA for four years. -Bozena Janiszewski
