Monika Gloviczki

Born in Warsaw, Poland, my first memories of art are related to the box of paints I received on my 3rd birthday – a gift from my father, a professional painter and graphic artist. My first collections of paintings at age 6 were exhibited and published in Poland.

During the martial law in Poland – aimed at destroying the Solidarity Movement – I immigrated to Paris, France, where I spent most of my life. In Paris, I attended medical school, earned MD and PhD degrees, and worked in medical research. I continued to paint and followed the oil painting class of Herve Quenolle in the Ateliers du Carrousel du Louvre.

Some years ago I married a Mayo Clinic surgeon and moved to Rochester, MN. After twenty-two years of a successful career in medicine, I have decided to devote myself completely to the world of colors. With my husband’s enthusiastic support I have launched my new professional life as a Minnesota-based visual artist, working primarily with oil and acrylic painting.

Since 2013 I’ve been studying oil painting techniques with HeeJune Shin, award winning colorist artist painter based in Rochester.

My paintings are displayed in the Rochester Double-Tree Hotel SEMVA gallery space, on my personal website http://www.monikalgloviczki.com, and in the Etsy online art shop – MonikaGloviczkiArt.
