From wonderful feature with #Evernote
"For many of us, staying organized and productive is about drawing sharp divisions—this goes here, that goes there. But for abstract artist Marta Spendowska, it can be as subtle as the line between two shades of blue. Marta’s vibrant, atmospheric art and design are all about the interplay and harmony of color. Off the canvas, she brings the same notions of interplay and harmony to a creative organization system built in Evernote."

Painting primarily on paper or watercolor panels, I build up layers of color and water that result in mingling of shapes. I actually call it a WATERCOLOR VANITY. I won’t say it out loud, but I take pride on managing the water and color at the same time. It’s tricky.  And electric at the same time.
I work with ad agencies, magazines in fashion, beauty and food market and I truly love what I do. 

In my fine art I’m drawn to melancholic women like Anna Karenina, Virginia Woolf, Bjork and Tilda Swinton. I like to capture the loneliness of the person, the moment s/he’s witnesses, usually somewhat insecure. 

I’ve been attracted to tragic geniuses of poets writers, thinkers, and painters for as long as I remember. The constant struggle to express their spirit and intellect influenced the way I see the world. Because of that I’m inspired by how little time we have to live and by how complicated are the relationships with each other. The immediacy of watercolor expresses the rush I feel towards every day experiences.

But I’m very happy and bubbly. I jump rather than dance, I talk to spirits and grow aloe vera, I ride my Ducati Monster 1100 like nobody’s business and I mingle that water with color whenever I can. I try not to complain, keep 3 notebooks (one for Morning Pages, second for psychic journaling, third for ideas) and I hunt for chaga and reishi mushrooms.

I hope to paint forever, so I have a little paranoia regarding my eyes and my right hand.
You can hire me to illustrate fashion, beauty, patterns, food and animal world. Again — thank you! There is never enough of gratitude around.

Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.
~ Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
