Biography

I am a graduate of the Faculty of Painting at the Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin, Poland. After graduation, I started my career in the creative industry working for several companies. Then I graduated from Interior Architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, Poland and I started interior design. While working on many projects, I returned to my roots. That is, in my completed projects, I put my own pictures and painted polychrome. It was a turning point for me. I decided that I want to return to painting. I love challenges. This is why I throw myself into various topics that must be a challenge for me and an opportunity to show emotions. I am inspired by nature, the surrounding reality, travels, people and animals. Currently, I paint various techniques: oil, acrylic and watercolor. For several years, I have been teaching freehand drawing and painting students at the Faculty of Architecture in Lublin. My works are in private collections in Poland, France and Sweden. I take part in Auctions of Young Art in Poland.
