My name is Jordanka Yaretz I was born and raised in Bulgaria and came to Canada in 1970
I was interested in art ever since I was a little girl. I used to visit the only Gallery in my home town Burgas and wished I could paint like those great artists. When I came to Canada , along with raising a family, I taught myself to paint.

I have participated in many jurried Art Shows and won numerous awards. I had solo and group exhibitions in Galleries in Canada and USA.
I was featured in countless articles in local newspapers ,including " Chatelaine Magazine". And I also appeared on 4 local TV Shows.
Eight of my paintings have been reproduced into Christmas Cards by UNICEF and the Leukemia Research Fund of B.C. Canada, with all proceeds going to the charities involved.
This is what someone wrote about my TREE paintings in their blog.
"Jordanka is nicknamed the “Tree Artist”, a name that is appropriate two times over: she is not only known for her stunning tree artwork, but also lives in heavily forested western Canada. Unlike most nature-themed art, Jordanka uses a surreal/modern approach, with a dark colored background and then a brightly contrasting color framing her subject; the overall effect is a vibrantly energetic art that seems to glow.
The trees themselves seem to dance; curling and twisting, branches often end in cute little curls and are accented with white blossoms and tufts of green
