Hello beautiful people! My name is Izabela and I'm 24 years old. I was born and raised in Poland, then moved to Germany when I was 14 years old.
My art journey started when I was a child. Being precise about literally everything at school was always very important to me and gave me a feeling of control and confidence. I tried to have the prettiest handwriting, my coloring books had to be on fleek. No lines were crossed. Same story with drawing and painting. When I found out that I enjoyed that, I had to become as good as possible but I never dreamed about becoming an artist.
Over the years I tried many different techniques and mediums. In 2020 I bought my first oil paint set and that was all I needed to rediscover art for myself and holy moly, that was it! I started again with a completely different mindset.
My art is inspired by strong emotions and feelings. Common subjects are anxiety and depression but also a lot of hope shines through. Colors became a powerful tool for me to express what words cannot. Every single painting session feels therapeutic and is a constant part of my daily routine - and since June 2023 a full-time job. Since 2021 many of my original paintings and prints have sold internationally, mostly in the US, and are part of many private collections. Currently, I am working on my first solid portfolio with larger projects.
