Magda Druzdel –

Magda has been an artist at heart all of her life. Having an architect as a father while growing up in the metropolis of Warsaw, Poland, greatly impacted her creative pursuits. After studying architecture herself, I realized that drawing and painting were natural and enjoyable.

After moving to Gold Beach, Oregon she found the rugged coastal landscapes of the ocean, the mountains, and the deep forests to be the inspiration for nearly all of her art.

Magda tries to capture a specific moment in time, through her artist’s perspective, of the beauty of nature. Sometimes using soft pastel colors and other times using bright, almost unreal colors to achieve a very strong contrast between light and shadow. Her goal is to portray on paper and canvas the wetness of the rain, the thickness of the fog, and the heat of a sunny day. Her wish is for the audience to be able to smell the fragrant ocean breeze and the wild meadows.
