My real name is Justyna Kowalska but you can call me Sirena. I am Ocean Artist, Shaman and Mermaid.

My art is an invitation to the quiet journey through the landscape of your own inner infinity, to the ocean of your dreams.

I am drifting between the Atlantic Ocean (La Palma Island, Spain) and the Mediterranian Sea (Sicily, Italy). Along the way, I paint and photograph sea, ocean and dreamscapes. My art reflects the journey I went to reconnect with Nature, regain faith in dreams and unleash my inner unicorns. I experienced kind of shamanic initiation from the Ocean. My mission is to channel and transmit magical energy of the waters.


BIO

Sirena [born Justyna Kowalska] is a Polish mixed media painter and photographer obsessed with the Ocean. She is theoretically based in Krakow (Poland), but rather you will find her creating on La Palma Island in Spain or Sicily (Italy). After graduating from AST National Academy of Theatre Arts in Kraków in 2008, she worked as a director, actress, and playwright for national stages; she was also a screenwriter in polish radio and television. In 2018 she took a sabbatical to recover from burnout and depression. The journey around the Canary Islands led to the spiritual and artistic transition. Through art, Sirena is exploring the topic of reconnection with Nature and dreams. She paints abstract seascapes with the use of organic materials (sand, sticks, dried plants). In photography, Sirena focuses on poetic landscapes and mythological self-portraits.


My art studio is in Nature.

Here is my artist statement.

At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the plashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons.

Carl Gustav Jung
