About ADKA

 

Born in the charming spa resort town Piestany, Slovakia, my love for bold colors, abstract shapes, ornamental flourishes, fantasy themes and dreamy detailed imagery has endured over the years. As a child I would fill pages of my sketchbook with miniature pen drawings. Lost in the swirl of images I thought to myself: "I love the look of my art! It makes me happy and allows me to escape from the real world." These positive art memories have stayed with me until my artistic past found me again.

Acrylic and ink proved to be the best combination for my original art style that appeals to art lovers, art enthusiasts and collectors from around the globe.

In college I majored in school psychology and my love for psychology, people and a multitude of characters and cultures all combine into my artistic expressions.

Watching my canvas characters come to life makes me want to create more and I am always curious to see where the story will go. It's a mix of unconsciousness and consciousness.

Nature, with its patterns, colors, variations and wildlife get my creative juices flowing. The beauty of life, freedom and the triumph of the human spirit motivate me to create.

I live happily with my husband and our two kids in North Carolina.
