Darla Bjork was born in Minnesota where she took the long route to art by first going to medical school at the University of Minnesota and then moving to New York City to train as a psychiatrist. Finally in 1977 she began her art career and has painted since. She was a founding member of the Ceres Gallery in 1984 and become a member of Soho20 Gallery in 1996. For many years she painted isolated, precarious figures on break backgrounds reflective of her work in mental hospitals but in more recent years she has dealt with lyrical abstract landscapes in which paint or wax is layered in an open, free manner.She has had solo shows in the United States and Europe and her work has been reviewed in The Woodstock Times, Kouvolan Sanomat (Finland), Women Artist’s News and The Village Voice.
