About Me

I grew up in Poland and have always been surrounded by art and nature. I took my first art lessons with my father, who is a self-taught artist, and at the time was creating copies of 19th century historical paintings. I guess that watching my father painting various figures and expressive faces, determined my interest in portraiture and figurative art.

I later moved to Krakow, enrolling in a five-year art course to develop my skills, gaining my Master of Arts degree in 2008.

For the next ten years I continued to paint, while opening my tailoring atelier, working as art conservation assistant, dance teacher and tour guide. Throughout this time, I kept developing my skills by watching other artists’ works, studying old masters and experimenting with different techniques.

In 2015 I moved to London and in 2020 I became a full time artist. I’m drawn to portraiture, however, I like diversity, tending to work in interchanging cycles across different genres, like landscape and still life. I’ve realised, that my plein air practice helps me improve as a portrait painter.

MY WORKS ARE ECO FRIENDLY AND CRUELTY FREE

As sustainability, our environment and animal welfare are very important to me, I do my best to ensure, that I work with materials that are true to my believes and values, using upcycling techniques, non–toxic solvents and high-quality synthetic brushes. I never use animal glue, widely known as canvas primer.
