BIO & STATEMENT

Jalinka is an artist who creates mixed-media paintings and collages that explore and communicate concepts of mysticism, nature, and freedom through surrealistic and symbolic narratives. She draws inspiration from various sources and uses all her senses, including her dreams, to create balanced compositions featuring figurative and abstract work. 

Her creative process is associative and experimental.

"I am an explorer of imagination. Ideas flow endlessly from within and in the world around me. With a love for the unique and the odd, I wander through flea markets, antique shops, and second-hand bookstores filled with stories and history. However, the most magical discoveries were in nature. It's where I feel most connected with life and myself."

 

"Using art as a transformative tool, I visually communicate and identify patterns and connections, shaping my life's purpose amidst this absurd existence. It offers me solace and healing. Sharing my art with others is a way of telling people who don't know it yet that creating has no limits. Every moment is an opportunity to discover and create. It feels like a magical ride in freedom land—where anything is possible!"
