Karina Drogowska's Page

Florence based artist Karina Drogowska was born in 1981 in Warsaw, Poland.
She graduated with a Master of Arts from the Academy of Fine Arts, Warsaw in 2006 specializing in Painting and Print (Lithography).
She has also completed Graphic Design course in St John's Central College in Cork and Cork College of Commerce in 2009.
Karina was a member of Black Church Print Studio in Dublin, Corkprintmakers in Cork and South East Plein Air in Wexford, Ireland.
At present she's pursuing: painting, drawing, print and graphic design while being involved in some theatrical productions.
Her work are inspired from images of every day life, such as landscapes, architecture and people. Karina watches objects almost like a thief who want to rob an impression from them and hold it on canvas , freezing that moment. Of her work Karina says:
"I find the most important thing is to capture the atmosphere which prevailed at a given location ... and I think this is a big challenge for the painter to give the full atmosphere of the surrounding nature. For me, it is unbridled nature, unpredictable, sometimes frightening, but also beautiful.
I think that nature is my element; I aspire to act, inspired to create."

Hi Karina, we will definitely meet up in Florence or a town nearby soon. Love to hear what course you are taking there in Florence. Always thought I should take up some formal training to get some technical input and discipline into my work. Attached is a painting I did at Castiglione d'Orcia in 1994. The one at Fiesole that you posted a couple of weeks ago reminded me of it. Similar type of corner house!!

Hi Karina.
Good to see you on Sunday and a nice strong picture you've made. Bad luck about the sunburn and stumbling. Poor Sandra had a prang into the back of her car which left her shaken with a sore neck when she had barely arrived. I think the two of you had better avoid Annestown area in future as I can remember you both bravely getting soaked the last time we were there. Perhaps Woyka caught a fish?

Yes, I like oils as well. I also paint in pastels which I also love.
