Art always played major role in Zdenka Bleile’s life. She was born in Prague, Czech Republic, which is a cultural hub of central Europe. After taking art classes as a child, she studied art in Charles University. Among her professors was prominent Czech abstract painter Zdeněk Sýkora. Following move to California she got a degree in Graphic Design. Zdenka never stopped dreaming of going back to fine arts.

After years of painting in an impressionist style, Zdenka recently embarked on a new direction in her creative process. She has fallen in love with cold wax and oil. This technique allows her to extend her repertoire to abstract realism and purely abstract works.

Zdenka feels that she can express herself on a much more personal level. Abstract art is very interactive and emotional. The pure spontaneity that comes with working abstract has allowed Zdenka to find deeper meaning within her creative process. Passionate inner feelings, colors and shapes are the main building blocks of her expression.

She believes that “Every painting is a love affair, a challenge and a learning experience”.
