Ewa is connected with Art's Council of Princeton - Gregory Perkel’s Art Studio and PRATT Institute in Brooklyn. Ewa exhibited primarily in New Jersey, next in Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Her works can be found in private collections in U.S.A. and in Trenton City Museum. Her artwork includes portraits, still life and landscapes. Ewa works with oil, pastel, acrylic, watercolor, but recently her preferred medium is oil. Currently she paints as much as she can, training to find her own style of expression. Her painting style can be seen as a combination of realistic and impressionist work.
Ewa paints natural subjects in a combination of representative styles. The composition and color relationships are the drivers of each piece. All of the natural subjects can offer the opportunity to show off relationships of color, which is special for her. She takes into account the inspiration from her favorite polish artists of the “Young Poland” movement such as Alfons Karpinski, Jan Stanislawski, Stanistaw Wyspianski, Konrad Krzyzanowski and others. Nonetheless she does not hide equal appreciation for non-polish artists such as Paul Cezanne ,Vincent Van Gogh, Gustav Klimt. Ewa is an artist with old European background, searching for her original style among the modern realities of the New World. While having a concentration on the classic styles of Europe, Ewa evolves from these with a renewed sense of self. “The painting is my joy and delight and attempt to survive the chaos of the twenty first Century…” says Ewa.
