A self portrait of the artist on coffee-dyed watercolor rag painted in black ink, acrylic, and decorated with blue acrylic wool. This self portrait is about the artist enjoying knitting, featuring a hat she made herself.

Notes: This artwork contains puncture holes on the back of the piece from a cat attack. It does not affect the appearance of the artwork once framed, but I would like to note it in full disclosure.

Nothing bugs me more than seeing blank walls when I visit a home or office! Whether an oil painting, watercolor painting, mixed media artwork or a charcoal drawing, original art is an opportunity to express yourself on your walls. Original art can be a travel souvenir of a vacation, a reminder of a special moment in your life, or a personal spiritual symbol that grounds you. Your favourite place, your favourite animal, or your favourite color - it's up to you. A one of a kind piece adds mood and atmosphere to your home with rich color and texture, and adds sophistication by showing off your great taste.

Why buy original art over an art print?

Whether watercolor, ink, acrylic, oil paint, pencil, pastel - every piece is made with archival quality acid-free materials designed to last hundreds of years.Unlike many purchases we make, original art is a financial investment. It is an investment in the meaningful objects you keep in your home. Original art will always be more valuable than a print and increase in value with the artist's reputation. It is made by the artist's hands, unlike a printed copy. It can be resold to other art collectors or at art auctions.

Why buy my art?

I, Karolina Szablewska, make a commitment to build my reputation as an artist and make sure your art is valuable past my life time. My life is dedicated to creating art and building my art practice. I started creating art when I was a kid, but then went on to get my BFA. I have been practicing art for nearly 2 decades and every year I apply to art exhibitions, to art grants, and special commission projects. I am a full-time artist and every purchase supports my art practice. To learn more about me, read who is this artist?

Art is Handmade

In the world of mass-production, I would like to remind that all original art is handmade, therefore every piece is unique. It's one of a kind and I will not be able to simply send you a new one if it breaks! Original art does age because many art supplies are made with both synthetic and natural materials. It is very important to take care of original art - keep it away from moisture, direct sunlight, or direct heat as well huge temperature fluctuations. Ideally, please frame your original art and definitely do not fold it up to store it.
