Art is my life. The color in it is my passion.

Ziggy in the studio

Siegmund (Ziggy) Wolodkewitsch How is it that most of us can quickly recognize a color, but to try and describe what that red or blue looks like is a hard task indeed. How we perceive a color can be as different as there are eyes that see it. So when I paint a wonderful landscape at sunset, or a beautiful brook running through the woods, or the tender smile in a portrait, I am trying to capture the color that will move you to think how wonderful our world of color really is. 

A self taught artist residing in Martinsburg, West Virginia, Siegmund (Ziggy) Wolodkewitsch has been involved with art throughout his life. Through art workshops, seminars, self-study and determined self-discipline, art success is demonstrated in his works. His love for doing fine art is evidenced in his interest in oil paintings that primarily encompass landscapes, portraits, still life .

For years he worked during the day as a Graphics Manager in an engineering environment, then in the evenings doing his art. One day an opportunity arrived that enabled him to do art full time.

In addition to creating commissioned works and portraits, he exhibits primarily at private showings , regional festivals, and galleries. Ziggy has also created mural art on residential walls; and also designs newsletters, program brochures, program tickets, and original one-of-a-kind Christmas cards.

Ziggy has works throughout the country, more recently in Nebraska, Colorado, Virginia, Illinois, Iowa, Florida, Alabama, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, Washington, California, Delaware, and Maryland.
