This is Sylwia here with my last project as part of DT, but not to worry, I will come back next year as a Curator so I will have more projects for you! Today is a special day as it is my Birthday!!! Yuppy! But as I am in a wintey/Christmasy mood, I decided to make deery art journal spread:) For this project I used mainly Donna Downey Stencil, Liquitex Heavy Gesso and Daniel Smith Watercolors.
Enjoy the video!

Hey arty souls!!! My name is Sylwia Gryczuk and I am originally from Poland but live and create in little Irish town called Claregalway. I have started my Art journey in 2009, when I joined the oil painting classes in Galway. After few classes I decided to practice at home and to learn by myself. I started exploring different media of art and currently I am working with different mixed media such as acrylic,watercolor, vintage papers, beeswax, fabric. I am very passionate about painting, art journalling,collages, decopatch and craft projects:). I have also completed Art in Group facilitation course in CIT. This course inspired me to combine my art skills and my work (I work as a Project Co-ordinator in Garda Diversion Youth Project). I plan and deliver wellbeing educational programmes through art. The outcomes have been amazing. It is great to see young people expressing themselves in a safe environment. And that's what I love about Art: its universal and creative language without the words!!!:))
In 2012 I have created TandiArt studio (one of my rooms converted into art studio) where I put my whole heart into white canvas and pages to transform them into something happy and soulful:). The name came from a little girl named Thandi which means 'loved', as I would love my art to give love and happiness to myself and other people:)
