This website was born out of my personal passion for art and a sense of belonging. I am a mom, a wife, an English teacher who loves painting, drawing and writing, but first and foremost, I am a Carpatho-Rusyn woman who comes from families of strong, resilient and wonderful moms, grandmas, great-grandmas and aunts who have supported each other the best they could for generations.
I don’t even remember how I noticed that there were no websites dealing with Carpatho-Rusyn art in English, so I started one, mostly for myself, in order to be exposed to art from a personally relevant perspective. And it has given me a great satisfaction to get to know many both classically trained and folk artists, and to enjoy the wholesomeness of Rusyn artistic expression.
So – if you are an artist with Carpatho-Rusyn origins (or you know someone who is), send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short bio and samples of your artwork, or a link to your website. I will add you to this collection.
In the meantime, if you want to see where I come from and what I’m up to these days, come over to my personal website and get to know my work better.
