Meet 16 Year Old Artist Joanna Wirażka

1) Tell us about yourself?

I’m 16 years old and I’m a self-taught artist. I was born to draw and paint. I have been doing it since I was a teenager. When I was 3 I did my first drawing. I haven’t attended any art school, I attend high school, I’m in chemistry-biology class because this is my second passion and I confess for young person is hard to choose between art and confident future maybe associated with biology and chemistry.

2) Where are you located?

I live in Poland and originaly I’m Polish too.

3) How did you get started?

When I was 6 I drew nature, some landscapes and apples . As I told I hadn’t attended any art school but my grandad has learnt me basic art. Then I was Inspired by another artists on Insagram.  I did my first leaf in the last winter. It was New Year’s Eve (2014/2015) it’s quite funny because then everybody has been preparing for party but I have just been painting a leaf all day. I had some dry leaves from autumn season and I was inspired by galaxy and fireworks so I decided to associate leaf with galaxy.

4) Show us a picture of your tools!

5) Do you sell your works? If yes then how do we buy?

Temporary I’m not selling my artworks because of lack of time. I don’t sell leaves because  they are really sensitive. I’m planning sell prints on handbags but it only a plan.

6) How do we get in touch with you?

my email is:

7)  What is your advice to aspiring artists?

According to my motto: Try to find real art everywhere and let it inspire you, I think art is everywhere, you must just look for it. Be open and free in art. Don’t worry to express your emotions. Unfortunetaly being artist is not a confident future, you cannot be popular all time, you even can be forbbiden what is the worst thing for artist. I want to say that through your artworks, you are deathless. You will leave something- a part of yourself. That’s why art is the most amazing and important thing. Art is my hobby, cure for stress, moment when you can be free, do everything you want, express yourself and letting your imagination create something beautiful
