mira hnatyshyn  

I am a Texas-based painter of Eastern European heritage and I use art as a visual language to explore issues of culture, gender and human behavior.

My work has been collected by the Saatchi Gallery in London, the Houston Art Alliance for the city of Houston, Texas, the Holocaust Memorial Museum of San Antonio and was featured in New American Paintings (#96 West Edition, 2011) and the Spring 2014 Edition of Studio Visit magazine. I dedicated myself to painting in 1999 after a career as an art director in Washington D.C. I hold an MFA from the University of Texas at San Antonio and a BS in Advertising and Design from the University of Maryland.  I also have taught at UTSA, the Southwest School of Art and ArtPace. I live and work in San Antonio, TX and divide my time between painting, teaching and family.
