Beata Rybska, Artist Cocooned:
” Life was an unplanned journey. I arrived in London, UK in 2015, in search of a better future. It was so different.
London introduced me to many cultures, people and things, but in the business of general survival I spent my initial years working in hospitality and retail while my art dreams slept.
COVID -19 & Lockdown inspiration:
The whole world had changed in a heartbeat and I realised I couldn’t work or travel home to Poland. I never thought I would witness such a thing in my lifetime. Luck would have it that I had settled in the home with a wonderful Jamaican family who had embraced me and we shared time getting through the COVID lockdown as my work stopped.
I now see everything with new eyes. Nature within the garden set alight my imagination. I was enlightened as I heard the birds sing clearly, clear skies with sight of the moon and stars, the flowers bloom and watch the vegetables grow.
And so, my love of expression through art was reborn and so I created my ZODIAC range of acrylic art. I made my own interpretation of horoscope signs with constellations that can be appreciated for their uniqueness of colours and abstract design.”
“ Beautiful works with Astrology, very personal in-depth emotional connection for all”
Georgia Robinson – Gallery owner / Curator

Come & Talk Seminar
About the Seminar – Creating Legacy – Training Your Child In The Way…
Who are YOU? What makes You special? How can You use Your Special in the world ? What help do You need?
We should know that what we feel is not going to leave a legacy, but what we do or don’t do will. For example, the heroin and the coward, both feel the same thing! It’s what they do that makes the difference. It’s what the hero does that makes him a hero; and what a coward doesn’t do that makes him a coward.
What do you want people to say about You when You’re gone? What story is your life writing that will be left for generations to come? Surely there are deeper questions to ponder about what kind of legacy your life will leave for Your children.
