About the Artist

Bio:
Stacey Pydynkowski is enchanted by the magic of the creative process – the way pigments merge to convey a spectrum of emotion and depth beyond the confines of language. She collects and preserves her favorite flowers and uses the petals to create emotive, mixed media pieces. She is a cancer survivor and an advocate for art in public spaces to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to connect with and find comfort and strength in visual imagery. She holds degrees in studio art and psychology from Saint Vincent College, and her nature-inspired paintings have been exhibited throughout the region.
Her work is represented by Firebox Art Studios in Carnegie, PA, and she is the current Resident Artist at You Are Here Gallery in Jeannette, PA.

Note from the Artist:
As you view my work, I invite you to feel
and let the images transport you to somewhere meditative, somewhere lively, somewhere old, or perhaps somewhere new.
I invite you to find shapes in the clouds and explore a wide range of emotions: nostalgia, trepidation, joy, triumph – the images are unified by a common thread of resilience and hope….rain or shine. ☼
