Today’s idea is an EVENT: Grow Centre Holiday Pop-Up Shop, feature tons of local artists, crafters and the like. My friend, Emma is the genius behind this event. It runs from Dec 13-21, 10-5pm daily.
I wanted to specifically spotlight a VERY talented artist named Izabela Bienko. “The original abstract impressionist paintings in the ‘Color Play’ Collection are on canvas or birch wood, using high quality acrylics, inks and spray paint mediums and a wide array of application techniques. Izabela conveys the dynamic, colourful, whimsical, and fun nature of children through her paintings, inspired by years of work with children and families. Understanding child development so intimately through her professional career in children’s mental health, she was inspired to use abstract art in order to enhance and facilitate learning, imagination, creative and abstract thinking.
Abstract art always demands the question “what do you see, and why?”, encouraging discussions that promote self discovery and expression.”
Her art completely touches my soul every time I see it up pop in my Facebook newsfeed!
Amazing for uplifting and inspiring your spirit and emotions = health!
You can view more of her work on the Grow Centre FB page here
