I was Born in 1976 in post-war, communist Poland and at the age of 12 moved to England. Unable to initially speak the new language, I adopted the visual as means of relating experiences. It took time and a meandering path to discern my creative voice, which I continue to define and refine as I make art alongside my daughter, my ‘Cuore di questo cuore’.
My visual Poems and stories weave together personal and literary inspirations. I infuse them with symbolisms of plants and with patterns found across Europe. I render the stories in natural materials, honoured to use them for their inherent beauty and nobility.
