Beata Jakubek is an internationally recognized artist presently living and working in Ottawa, Canada. She is represented by several Canadian Art Galleries. Her paintings have been honored by numerous artistic awards.

Nature is the inspiration for her artwork – it not only crops up in her landscapes and florals, but also in her abstracts. She paints with bright colours and chooses organic and geometrical shapes. She explores texture by incorporating nature (sticks, seeds, sand), found objects, yarn, thread and variety of papers into her mixed-media acrylics.

Her paintings also reveal an East Asian influence. Before moving to Canada, Beata lived in Tokyo, Japan and travelled around Southeast Asia for two years. She studied sumi-e, traditional Japanese calligraphy, and ikebana, Japanese flower arrangement. Instead of haphazardly tossing flowers into a vase, Beata learned to organize them with an eye toward harmony and balance. Now she strives for the same kind of unity in her paintings; she thinks a lot about division of space.

Beata obtained her art education in Poland, US, Japan and Canada. Her paintings are in private and corporate collections in Canada, Europe, US and Asia.

Artist Statement

I get inspiration from nature and my extensive travels. Through layered texture and carefully chosen colors I interpret nostalgic, elusive and tranquil emotions the always changing surroundings evoke in me. My paintings create real and imagined places where people can rest, contemplate and take time to enjoy the beautiful world we live in.
