Kasia combines passions for art and for horses and horse-riding. She has been painting mostly horses on canvas utilizing the acrylic technique. She often combines paint with golden and silver leaves which introduces an extraordinary effect of space. Horses have been always the love and the life of the artist. Kasia not only knows how to paint horses but knows how to ride them. She is an avid horse rider and been riding horses since she was a little girl. In 2008 she earned a horse riding instructor certificate. Her specialty is dressage and jumping. As a horse rider, she has worked for a few well established stables. She also owns the horse named “Enigma” which often has been the object and subject of her paintings. For Kasia horses combine the extraordinary delicacy, strength and beauty. She often presents the animals in various mythical forms, for instance she brings back images of Pegasus. Her images are created with passion and love for horses.
"I always had two passions: one is horse-riding which gives me a great pleasure and satisfaction,and the second is all kinds of artistic activities. Horses are a constant source of inspiration. Therefore, they naturally became the main subject of my work. I discover them all the time and constantly trying to capture their beauty.Each horse is different, just as every human being carries a different story and emotions. I try to capture their emotions hoping that one can recognize a piece of story, a piece of soul, a piece of heart through my paintings. That’s why my images depict not only the silhouettes of horses but also a large amound of emotions. In the images we see not only horses, but also sadness, pride, peace. Very important to me is that emotional message felt in my paintings allows for anyone to explore something new every day.
There are paintings of horses which are nothing more than their image, but for me it is very important to introduce horses personality and spirit. My goal is to master the technique that would allow to show the entire esence of these unusual animals wich are horses.
