Artist Lynn Irena Jadamec came to Rockaway about a year ago and has been working on a group of oil paintings based on Rockaway scenes, primarily those of beach, ocean and the surfing community.
"I am really inspired by the surf culture and the architecture of the Rockaways," she says. "I have been trying to capture their uniqueness and beauty."

Jadamec is a 1997 graduate of the University of Connecticut and the Lyme Academy of Fine Arts. She has earned a BA in Fine Arts and has been a student at the Art Students League in Manhattan.
Her paintings can be seen at an exhibit at the Lyons Wier Gallery in Chelsea, 511 West 25 Street in Manhattan.
They will be on view until mid-April.
She also plans to join the Rockaway Artists Alliance and participate in their art shows.
