November 18, 2015 (San Diego) – The paintings of Countess Jadwiga “Inka” Zamoyska of Zamość are stunning depictions of nature and portraits  with a masterful application of light and shadows to create mystery, dramatic effects and beauty.  Her works evoke the style of Rembrandt, the 17th century Old Master famed for his illuminating imagery.   

That similarity is no accident. Like Rembrandt, Countess Zamoyska comes from a European family and has endured her share of life challenges, finding therapy in her first love, art. “My passion to paint is fueled by the ever-changing beauty that, if we let it, confronts us at every turn,” she states. “When I see it, I crave to raise it to canvas.”

Astonishingly, her current portfolio of exquisite portraits, still life, landscapes, seascapes and snow scenes have all been created in the past few years—and next up, this remarkably talented artist has agreed to create a painting of East County wilderness which will be auctioned on November 20th with proceeds benefitting both Grossmont Hospital Foundation and launch of a new special section on East County Magazine covering animal rescue groups and wildlife/animal news in our region. She will also paint a custom animal painting to be auctioned at a December 5th party for the animals, also benefitting our new “Animal Action” section..
