Ivanka has been an artist since she first started drawing and painting as a child. In school she used to participate in competitions, and won several awards in recognition of her artistic talent.

She is an Artist member of Willowdale Group of Artists since 2011. Her paintings were chosen to be on display at the Annual Spring Juried Art Shows every year since 2012. Other shows include Annual Fall shows and Sunnybrook Hospital art show.
In 2014 she joined the King Craft Studio.
She became an Artist member of King City ASK in 2014 and she has been taking part in ASK Studio Tour every year since 2014.
In 2015 she joined SOYRA and has been participating with her art in the annual shows at the Aurora Cultural Center. For the last 3 years her art work has been chosen for the Aurora Town Hall juried shows.
In 2018 and 2019 she took part in North York Visual Arts Fall Show.
She mainly paints with oils, but she is continuously exploring and experimenting with other mediums. Constantly growing and evolving as an artist, Ivanka aims to create beautiful, impactful art that convey the feeling and mood of a moment in a way that the viewer can become a part of it.
