Ms. Ifshin’s paintings are the product of exploration in “color synergy which expresses fluidity of movement and the dynamic intensity of emotions” grabbing the attention, compelling the heart, mind, and soul to react to the emotions produced by the extremities of color blending and movement. As Ms. Ifshin states on her website, www.myartisyourart.com, she has found inspiration in “her studies in East Asian medicine in San Diego” and “became fascinated by the similarities between the movement of “qi” (vital life form, pronounced ‘chee’) in the body’s energetic meridians, the flowing nature of paint, and the shifts of energies and emotions that colors are capable of conveying when blended”.
Ms. Ifshin, a passionate student of art, studied at the liberal arts college State University of New York at Purchase. After graduation she backpacked through Poland, Hungary, the former U.S.S.R, and Czechoslovakia for two months.
During her travels, Ms. Ifshin was enlightened with truth about the mystery of art, that art is the “physical manifestation of the relationship between humanity and divinity”. Presently, Ms. Ifshin originally returned to the East Coast to bring her medicine to New Milford Hospital’s Diebold Family Cancer Center. Presently she is runs her own private practice: eastern body wellness in New Milford. Her work as an artist does not, yet it continues as life’s energy perpetually inspires her to capture the essence of emotions and produce the expression of her soul on canvas.
