ANGELA SIEJKA PHOTOGRAPHY
It gives me great pleasure to introduce to you the amazing photography of Angela Siejka. After putting it 'out there' for local artists/photographers to contact me regarding hanging their artwork on our Elaia dining room walls, I was delighted to hear from Angela.
I had been following Angela for some time on Instagram @angelasiejka so I was familiar with her work of everything Tasmanian. Here is Angela's story about herself and her artwork that currently hangs in Elaia. You are more than welcome to pop in and have a closer look as the photos here don't do them justice. And of course they are all available for sale. We are located at 240 Charles Street, Launceston. Tasmania.
About me...Angela Siejka
" I am Tasmanian, I love Tasmania and I am passionate about everything Tasmanian.
The people, the coasts,the mountains,the rainforests, the local businesses,the passion shown by many of us,the amazing fresh produce,the weather(yes...the weather ),the sense of community and support for others, the waters, the natural wonders and most of all, I love family....
My family, Friends' families , Work families, Business families, School families , Market families , Spiritual families, Small town families and so on. They are what make Tasmania so special.
My photography only began 5 years ago. It has combined all the above into a medium that I happily share for many to see and enjoy.
I gain so much pleasure from exploring Tasmania. The walks through our rainforests in Autumn awaken all the senses; the coastal regions on stormy days feel like another world; the sunsets and sunrises are always different; the salt air is invigorating; the forest fragrance after a rainfall varies from forest to forest depending on which tree species dominates; the days wandering near water/sea/rivers/lagoons when all is calm, give me an inner peace.
I wish to portray the iconic Tasmania in my images. Not just our amazing natural beauty, but our wonderful sense of humour, our weather, our hidden wonders , our sense of community. I hope to encourage many to explore our state. I also love that I give so much pleasure to many that cannot visit the places I can get to.
I have 4 adult children , who along with my husband, John, have supported and encouraged my love of exploring Tasmania and sharing the images."
