Madeleine Prochazka

Although born and raised in France of Armenian parents, I came to the US long ago and have lived in California ever since.

I loved painting from a very young age but got discouraged by an unkind comment from someone I looked upon as an authority figure when I was 14. I then became an English language and literature teacher in France, then a French language and literature teacher in the U.S. I quit to raise two daughters and upon my return to the work force was forced to start a bottom level in business. Having made my way back up to managerial level since then, I have now retired.

I rediscovered painting a few years ago, thanks to a daughter who gave me an easel and canvases as a Christmas present. I haven't stopped painting since then! I was obviously impressed by the Impressionist style which my highschool teacher favored also. I love and appreciate any style, however, that somehow "speaks" to me.
I appreciate very much the friendship and acceptance I have found on Paintings I Love.

I have also joined a local art club, the San Fernando Valley Art Club. See more of my works on my websites, www.artbyapro.com, http://www. madeleine-prochazka.artistswebsite.com, as well as on Artbreak.com, and Saatchi On Line.com. I can be reached via email at mp@artbyapro.com.

Do you have a favorite animal, insect, reptile, and why?..I love frogs, just like how funny they look.
Ah, Patti, where to begin! I've been an animal lover since very young, with cats and gorillas 'up there' but of the inverts, I am most fond of....dragonflies!... view answer
