Meet the panel
Iwona is a synesthetic abstract artist based in Ely. Iwona enjoys experimenting with acrylics to create texture and definition and is passionate about bold colours, believing they are strongly associated with emotions.
She is drawn to memorable pieces, works that stand out, and which tell the story behind something, and those that are unique. She is also interested in styles and techniques showing the relationship between different colours and different media (paints, textiles, glass, ceramics etc).
