About Nadia Lysakowska

Nadia was born and raised in Eastern Ukraine. She graduated from two art schools, Art College of Donetsk and Lviv National Academy of Arts, with 10 years of formal study in painting as well as graphic design and fashion. Throughout her career in Ukraine, Nadia increasingly sought expression through painting and became a permanent participant in solo and group exhibitions.

When armed conflict led to the bombing of her city, she fled with her son, English bulldog and Scottish Fold cat to Tuscany, Italy: a new home and endless suggestive landscapes that now host her artistic roots. While Nadia is currently settled with her palate and brushes, it is her paintings that travel the world, including the United States, Canada, England, Ireland, France, Norway, Germany, and back home to Ukraine.

In the artist's paintings, the techniques of graphics and painting smoothly intersect. Nadia combines subtle graceful effects and corpus technique, and as a result, canvases are born with their own unique character and individual style.
