Originally I am from Warsaw, Poland. My family emigrated to the United States when I was a little girl. In 2006, I earned a BFA from Pratt Institute. Currently I am living in Chicago.
I spend a lot of time outdoors, hiking, exploring and reflecting my life experiences. In my work I strive to create something beautiful, inspired by what is hidden inside me, by what I find most beautiful around me and by what I hope to discover in the future. Over the years I've been peeling away layers, and coming closer to something that's been growing inside of me, an inherent urge to be closer to the land, to form a new relationship with it. I've been slowly piecing together this puzzle and recently my dreams have found their way into my work. I am combining the magic of childhood fairy tales with what fascinates me today: the enchanted landscape of our planet. Today I draw my inspiration from natural patterns, rock formations and mountainous landscapes. I hope to find more pieces of the puzzle, to learn something new about myself, and to become closer to the land that I keep discovering, the land that seems to be calling me to come and learn from it and to enjoy all the magic, mystery, and beauty that mother nature has created for us to discover and enjoy.
