Beata Pałach Milligan was born in 1983 in a small town in southern Poland. As a teenager she moved to Kraków to improve her artistic skills with the help of local experienced artists – professors of the Academy of Fine Arts and the Pedagogical University of Kraków. Since then she has developed her distinctive style, which expresses her love for the ethereal wildlife and the transience of the moment. She specialises in watercolours, but also works with acrylic paints, pastels and mixed media. She also likes to experiment with the structure of paper, creating collages and cut-outs.
Her paintings flip between diverse styles: from abstract expressionism to the inspiration of art brut or Polish School of Poster.
She creates paintings in watercolour technique expressing her intention to signify the power of nature, its endless richness of colours and unpredictable ‘moods’ of the Elements (Series: “Herbarium” 2008), “Raw” 2015). Her works also refer to the relationship between human and nature, as well as comment on today’s lifestyle (series “Wild Life” 2014) and the influence of human behaviour on Earth (series “Landscapes” 2020).
