Art by Gosia Babcock
My love of painting started early in life. Born in Poland, I was raised on a farm, where I took pleasure in caring for the animals. When I was 10, my family moved to America.
I began painting, and it became my 'Happy Place'. When I painted, I could escape for hours as I found ways to communicate non-verbally. When I painted animals, I could feel them, and give them life. I took comfort in the beauty of nature that surrounded me.
As I have gotten older, I have continued to use painting as my place to relax and lose myself. It is my therapy. Being semi-retired has given me even more opportunities to discover the wealth of subjects and materials available.
I love expressing myself on canvas and look forward to sharing my vision of God’s creations including animals, people, scenery and even breathe energy into inanimate objects. I hope you can experience the joy of my painting as much as I have delighted in the fulfillment of my dreams.
