Ewa Taryma-Myslinski was born and raised in Poland. She graduated from the European Academy of Arts in Warsaw, Poland, where she was fortunate enough to be personally invited to study for over 5 years and graduate under one of the most famous Polish artists, F. Starowieyski (, , ). He was the first Polish artist to have a one man show at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1986. Ewa’s studies at the Academy included painting, drawing, lithography, and graphics. She is the first graduate of Prof. Starowieyski atelier and could be considered his artistic successor.
Ewa has been invited to participate in many art exhibitions and workshops in Poland, France, Germany, Spain, Canada and USA. For example, she won the first prize in the second international competition “Sacrum in Art” under the patronage of Pope John-Paul II. Her paintings are collected by museums and private collectors on two continents.
Ewa’s art cannot be categorized within a single medium or technique because she works in various media including oil, pastel, coal, chalk, watercolors and graphics. She feels comfortable working in many formats and is able to select the style and technique she considers most appropriate for a particular work of art.
In Europe, Ewa’s art was focused primarily on people and their feelings, but after arriving in Canada, landscape became equally important in her art due to the open and beautiful Canadian nature.
Currently Ewa lives in the San Francisco Bay Area in the United States. Indeed, the wonderful American people and landscapes have opened up a whole new and exciting aspect of her artistic life.
