Professional Career

Graduated from the Faculty of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków. She received a diploma as a painter from Professor Adam Wsiołkowski. In 1995 she was awarded the first prize "Promotions 94″ - Legnica. In 1998/99 she was awarded a scholarship from the American Pollock-Krasner Foundation.

She paints, combining abstraction and symbolism, and currently, as a result of her search for a new path, she leans towards symbolical surrealism. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Poland and Bonn, Budapest, Birmingham, Seoul.

Artistic approach

BLACK, what a word! Genre, style, stories, cinematic odyssey, characters, spiritual collapse, drama, crime mystery and emanation of truth. Can I enter the realm of Black armed only with a brush, oil paints and canvas? Can I use this traditional and noble painting technique to get closer to the heart of Noir? Can I tell stories on the flat surface of the canvas, where my heroes cannot be animated like on a movie screen, but are frozen in a soundless space? I hope I can. On this journey, I am both restless and constructively confident in my search for the meaning of our culture and reality, seduced by the elegance of this world of black and white illusion and metaphysical darkness. So there you have it, that's my fiction.
