In Her Golden Land.
The Land I have the privilege to work on has its own body, spirit and mind. In summer I work with the tangible, taking care of my garden. It involves planting, sowing, weeding, watering, and finally harvesting. In winter I work with the metaphysical – “gardening” in the Land of vivid colours, shapes and imagination.
I paint seasonally, staying in touch with the spirit and mind of the Land.
Fully present in all seasons,
She is my muse and my work companion.
I grow vegetables so that my body can be sustained.
I plant flowers for my soul to experience beauty.
I practice painting to connect with the spirit of Her Land.
Originally from Poland, Teresa Mrozicka received her training in fine arts at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun, and graphic arts at George Brown College in Toronto.
“I feel very fortunate to live in Canada, a country that has given me the opportunity to follow my passion. Growing up in a small town in Poland I didn’t have the opportunity to see original paintings of great masters, but that didn’t stop me from looking at the reproductions of famous paintings for hours. Right there the passion for art was born. The colour, texture and form was so vivid and rich, the impression on my mind so deep and intense, I thought that only a very gifted person could become an artist, never considering becoming one myself. Then life took its course and led me to studying and later practicing painting. Having been painting for more than 30 years, I came to the conclusion that it’s not skill or technique that is crucial, but … the passion to be creative and expressive in every step of life and to have the courage of tuning inwards and enlivening the spirit”.
Mrozicka lives in a country home north of Sydenham, Ontario, where she is doing two of the things she loves the most – painting and gardening.
