Hello

I work in between mediums of sculpture and painting, often merging them together in small scale sculptural portrayals of subtleties of emotions. I'm strongly influenced by childhood as a time and state of forming and becoming, which you can see both in my direct and spontaneous approach to material as well as the choice of representational images. I try to approach the material without pre-conceived ideas and focus on tuning into its qualities in order to achieve the expression of fleeting moods.

I had gained Sculpture MFA (Wroclaw PL, 2005) and have exhibited in Poland, Germany and the UK. My paintings and sculptures are in private collections.
