Mirta Groffmanis a Ukrainian artist that now lives and works in Turkey. She uses acrylic and oil on canvas and prefers larger sizes and monumental paintings. Her style is synthetic; she works with color in the impressionist style and symbolism is integral to the images she creates. A teacher once said to her, ‘You are talented, but you need to make a choice: between having a family and being an artist’. Without any hesitation, she answered - I would have both. Now, she has 10 wonderful children, a man she loves and has created more than 600 paintings over the course of 8 years.
