Irena Kurowska

I am a Yorkshire based painter of landscape and still-life working mainly in oil although I occasionally like to use watercolour and acrylic.

I was born in Edinburgh and studied art psychotherapy at Queen Margaret University. For many years I worked for the NHS as a therapist. I am now retired and am enjoying having more time to paint.

My landscape paintings explore the atmosphere and mood of the countryside around me. I am inspired by the stillness and peace of the early morning sunrise over the sleeping land. By the cloud formations and the amazing colours of the big skies that I see when out walking my dogs. By the exciting land formations and vastness of Yorkshire.

In my still-life paintings I look for the essence of the subject. The fragility and joyousness of a flower. The pattern made by the leaves and shadows rather than a detailed study.

My working method is intuitive and process-led. I very much enjoy experimenting and following the way the paint leads me.

My work verges to a greater or lesser degree on abstraction but has always as its focus a sense of atmosphere and light.
