Natalia Czajkiewicz is an artist living and working in Seattle, Washington. Raised in California, her work is heavily influenced by her sun soaked youth and the grey contrast of the Pacific Northwest. Nostalgic and sentimental, she is inspired by women, human interaction, childhood memories and dreams, spells, water, internal alarms, outer space, alchemy, and magic. Natalia's recent paintings are explorations of a dream state. Space, magic, and time are woven throughout these new works to create haunting vignettes. Layered, textured backgrounds made of geometric patterns create a web of detail, while mystical women rich in symbolism seem to guard a universe of her own creation.
