Bio

My paintings are being created in tempera on wood panels. 

I am totally enraptured by the medieval and early Renaissance art of painting, especially Italian one. This is my source of inspiration and ideas. 

I also draw inspiration from my journeys around Poland and Southern Europe. I am fascinated by old gardens and their sad remains that can be found in abundance all over Poland. I am an incurable romantic picturing manor park in every weird clump of trees seen in the midst of the fields. I love tracing - with the map in my hands - the remnants of what once were glorious palaces and gardens. 

I am also inspired by the biblical texts, in particular by the Old Testament, and their painterly interpretations in medieval manuscripts.

Besides, I paint icons and take orders for copying the works of the great masters in the Renaissance and the Middle Ages art. 

I am a true admirer of children´s art.  I teach art classes designed for children in my studio in Łomianki www.plastykalomianki.pl, where I am better known as Dorota Słowińska :-).

 

I studied at the Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts (ASP) in Warsaw which I graduated from  in 1999 by earning my diploma in Krzysztof Wachowiak´s studio, and then annex to a diploma – in Rafał Strent´s studio of workshop graphics.
