Her Biography 

Janina Laxness     / artistic nickname/ , Iwona Janina Siwicka   was born in 1957.

She began to study painting and graphics at the Academy of Art in Gdansk in 1978 and graduated with a Master's Degree in 1982.
Her early paintings were influenced by sixteenth century Dutch masters , in particular Hieronymus Bosch and Peter Brueghel have always been the driving force in her search for perfection , not only in painting techniques but also in a mystic world of demons and engels.
In her art she uses symbols and expressive combination of forms and colors in order to show human obssesions and secrets.
Like the other of her favorites , more contemporary artist Max Ernst a real surrealist , she is convinced that during a process of creating art, the creator's mind becomes a tool submitting creator's hyperconscious.
Her philosophy mixed with striking colours and almost an obsession for a technical perfection makes her savaging and scary , taking an observer to a different dimension.
Janina's paintings belong to established galleries and private collection in Europa , Canada and USA.
