Joanna m Augustyn


Polonaise de racine, je vis à Lyon depuis quelques années. Je travaille essentiellement sur les sujets inspirés par la nature – le thème de ma première expo – avec des techniques de pastel et d’acrylique.

Pour compléter ma présentation je préfère m’exprimer en anglais ….

Born and educated in Poland, I hold a Master of Applied Arts and Graphic Design from from Academy of Fine Arts in Cracow.

I lived in the USA for most of my adult life.

My professional career as an independent home furnishings designer developed and flourished in New York City, where I was commissioned to create unique, high-end designs for home decorating.

A few years ago, at the Art Students League of New York City, I began to draw from life under the tutelage of James McElhinney and Peter Homitzky.

Those drawings, executed in conté crayons, charcoal and oil pastels were included in juried group exhibitions organized by Art Students League and won numerous awards between 2009 and 2013.

Since 2014 I l have been living and working in Lyon.

Encouraged and advised by Muriel Lecointe and Franck Bonnefoy I continue painting and exploring new mediums and techniques. Most of my work is inspired by nature but breaks into imaginative realms with varied levels of connection to reality.
