Canadian artists

Born in Prague, she graduated from the Fine and Applied Arts in the Czech Republic, later continuing with independent studies in Fine Arts, at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Originally trained as a ballet dancer, she performed on stages in her native Prague and accomplished numerous professional international engagements. 

Her later transition to visual art practice in Canada has been her natural progression in her need to communicate her creative essence, identity, and presence as a contemporary artist. Music, dramatic arts, dance, and cinema still imbue her artworks with personal insights, inspirations, and drama. Her work has been exhibited in Canada, the USA, France, Czech Republic, and has received international awards in competitions in the past. Detail CV list of accomplishments can be seen on her website or can be provided upon request.

Her art practice focuses on a wide scale of subjects. The entirely conceptual approach isolates biological elements or objects in sequences revealing the inseparable relationship between abstract and intellectual. Exploring in her imagery primordial life, biomorphic forms, metaphorically related to human physiognomy, and psychology, she often draws inspiration from images referring to science, history, and technology. Ancient, primitive cultures and tribal arts are also strong and inspirational tools supplied for her work. 

This process is a communication search to reveal the connections between the present and discovering a subconscious awareness of our past existence. The essence of her artwork and her practice in oil, acrylic, and mixed media embodies the energy and continuity translated from her vocabulary being forwarded by beliefs in discovering the unknown. She also produces prints of digital artwork in an abstract style, photography of nature, and images and places of the past
