Urszula Kasza: Inspired Motiviation

Urszula Kasza is a Worthing based artist, showing her work for the first time at Colonnade House. Urszula had a stroke at 32 years of age. She struggled because her dominant right arm, hand and leg was paralysed, and her speech was damaged.

After working in the Rowans Centre, a specialist centre in Worthing supporting people with Brain injury and/or physical disability, Urszula was inspired to draw, paint and be creative. Urszula’s Uncle in Poland who was a well known painter, inspired Urszula to start to paint after the stroke in 2015.

Her work is often inspired by her travels in Europe, like the mountains, beaches, flowers, food & drink. Urszula’s inspiration also covers glorious tropical birds and portraits of famous people are also found in her lively and expressive paintings and sketches. Her love of detail is seen in her focused pencil study of the human eye.

Urszula works in a variety of medium; using oils, acrylic and coloured pencil. This allows for a variety of detail, colour and expression.

Urszula believes that art and creativity reduces depression and helps people to relax. She hopes that her artwork will encourage others to be creative.
