Jordanka Yaretz's Profile

About

My name is Jordanka Yaretz I was born and raised in Bulgaria and came to Canada in 1970.
I am a self-taught artist and over the years I painted flowers, animals,and mostly portraits in a truly realist manner.
I always wanted to do a series of paintings of my childhood memories in a very simple way. To be able to tell a story through my paintings. My primitive, naive style evolved over the next 19 years.

For the last 6 years I have been painting TREES. I have been told my TREE paintings have mysterious human qualities.

My art is also available on Pendants and Unique gifts and merchandise .

This is what someone wrote about my TREE paintings in their blog.

"Jordanka is nicknamed the “Tree Artist”, a name that is appropriate two times over: she is not only known for her stunning tree artwork, but also lives in heavily forested western Canada. Unlike most nature-themed art, Jordanka uses a surreal/modern approach, with a dark colored background and then a brightly contrasting color framing her subject; the overall effect is a vibrantly energetic art that seems to glow.
The trees themselves seem to dance; curling and twisting, branches often end in cute little curls and are accented with white blossoms and tufts of green".
