Maria Zielinska

 

Born in 1956 in the southern Polish city of Wadowice, Maria Zielinska began her study of art at the Bielsko-Biala High School of Fine Arts. From which she graduated Magna Cum Laude. She then moved to Warsaw and entered the Polish Academy of Fine Arts where she majored in Graphic Design with special emphasis on painting and drawing.

Maria has shown her work across America and in Europe, having had one-woman shows in Los Angeles and Newport Beach. She has also participated in more than 20 group exhibitions over the past ten years, including the Contemporary Artist’s Exhibition in Seoul, South Korea. Among Marysia’s professional achievements are the 1988 “Diploma of Excellence” for outstanding quality in oil painting, presented by the International Art Competition sponsored by Art Horizons in New York City, and in the same year, the “diploma Di Merit” for her oil painting, “Skipping Stones,” entered in the International Art Exhibition held in Viterbo, Italy.
