About Monika Shemel

I live and create in Cracow (Poland). My talent was noticed in early childhood. I won a few local art competitions in elementary school. I believe that art is from oneself. During my own journey of learning, I have moved through many different phases. I have worked with oils, watercolors, dry chalks, pencils, pastels, and others. I have painted, made jewelry and sculpted with cake, but art had always been a hobby. I decided to continue her development with painting. I believe that each technique has its own unique taste and depth, which is why I often painted the same object using different techniques. Thanks to this I learned how to implement designs, which come to my head. Most of all I like to work with soft pastels, oil pastels, acrylic or oil paints, but I still keep experimenting with other mediums. I love reflected light, sunlit surfaces, shadows, and contrasts. As an adult, I estimate values of properties for a living and pours my heart and soul into painting as a hobby. The life that goes on around me, the places I've been, or the times I've lived through are reflected in my paintings.
