Original acrylic paintings of mysterious abstract TREES, whimsical scenes of children playing in the snow, hot air balloons, fireworks, and vibrant abstract compositions by UNICEF artist Jordanka Yaretz will be on display at her Art Show, Studio Gallery Open House on Saturday Nov. 12.

She was born in Bulgaria and came to Canada in 1970 and started painting shortly after her arrival. The self-taught artist works in acrylics, canvas and on watercolor paper. Her paintings grace the walls of many private and corporate collectors around the world.

Jordanka’s art has evolved from realistic portraits, animals and flowers, to naïve, whimsical scenes of her childhood memories and life in Canada, and finally that evolution has brought her to the abstract and dramatic, TREES.

She has been featured in five local TV shows and one of her Naive paintings appeared in Chatelaine Magazine. Eight of her naïve paintings of children playing in the snow were reproduced into Christmas Cards by UNICEF.

For the past nine years Jordanka has been painting a series of mysterious TREES with human quality. Her TREE paintings have become very popular with collectors around the world.

Five of her TREE paintings have been used for TATOOS and two paintings have graced CD covers.

“Jordanka is a talented artist whose creativity sparks emotion in every piece she creates,” commented a fan of the artist’s work.

The Open House is scheduled for Saturday Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. at 7526 Morrow Rd. Agassiz B.C. For more information contact Jordanka at 604-796-0796.
