Contemporary Modern Abstract Art in Acrylics, Watercolors, and Mixed Media
“I am not an interior decorator. I am a messenger.”
Thank you for visiting my color sanctuary. My name is Dosia McKay and I am a graphic artist specializing in modern abstract paintings. I use various media and techniques. I like watercolors, acrylics, markers, pencils, as well as digital paint. I am fascinated by color and texture, freedom and whimsicality, but also by order and classic geometry.
I was was born and raised in Poland during the last decades of communism. I was drawn to various art forms since childhood and my formative years were spent studying classical music and flute performance. Early 1990s brought me to the United States and opened my eyes to the possibilities I have never considered before.
I graduated with a degree in Computer Integrated Drafting and Design and for over 10 years have worked as a technical illustrator. My drawings grace hundreds of patents issued to inventors around the United States.
But today I steer away from the mechanical drawings which are driven by precision and trigonometry. Instead I venture out into the world of imagination and abstraction. My visual artwork consists of acrylics, watercolors, and digitally created images.
I create my pieces in a very intuitive and introspective way. I don’t like to limit myself to any particular format, technique, or current trends in the world of art. The common denominator to all of my pieces is the capturing of a particular emotion or an idea often summarized in the title of the piece. My abstract paintings tend to resonate with people’s imagination and touch them on a personal level when they identify with the emotions portrayed in the paintings. They are personal “epiphanies”.
