"Painting is everything for me," says Agnes Pociecha, an artist who works on canvases both large (murals) and small (portraits). She studied art in her native Poland, including the Royal Academy of Art in Krakow, before relocating to the USA twelve years ago. "I chose the beautiful City of Elgin, with its unique atmosphere, as home town for my atelier," Agnes explains." Her atelier is now located in the Professional Building at 164 Division Street in Elgin. "I do not like to comment my paintings and drawings - expressing myself with colors and shapes is my way of communicating with the world."
You can meet Agnes and view some of her amazing work at the Alley of Art this Saturday, August 8th. For more information, visit her website at www.bestmurals.com
