about me & my art
I was born in 1965 and attended Technical University in Lodz, Poland. I chose architecture with the ambition of becoming a great architect. I graduated with MSc(Hons). Since graduating, I have been a full-time architect, working with Zbyszek, my husband and best friend, at our studio in Lodz.
My strong intuition, inner voice, dreams, emotions or maybe my positive energy and love for life all contribute to an impulse to be creative and develop many passions and fascinations other than architecture.
As a teenager, I spent time experimenting with colours & pigment behaviour. I initially worked with watercolours, a medium with the most apparent pigment characteristics. During my architecture studies, I mainly used pen and pencil, and, honestly, I was incredibly fascinated by those monochronic techniques. I still love it. In between, there were also a few oil paintings, but ultimately the oils have not been my cup of tea.
Some time ago, I discovered acrylics. The acrylics are very inspiring, and I can explore fluid acrylics as a vehicle to create pigment effects. Having long known that pigments have different characteristics, I use their viscosity to attract or repel each other as they vie for position in a musical journey of evolving patterns. Images created this way seem to be directly related to patterns found worldwide, whether natural, celestial or magic.
The paintings I create are not made for the viewer to function within them. Instead, their purpose is to stimulate powerful emotions and to excite them. They ask questions as opposed to answering them. My painting style is non-literal. I am constantly questioning what I see. Colour is more used to suit an idea and emotions rather than the subject itself. It is used as a metaphor for light & darkness, in keeping with the overarching themes of hope and optimism. This makes it ideal for me to experiment with the beauty of colour, with the freedom of realising my brain's limited perception of it.
In contemplation and meditation, I open myself to an inner vision which becomes a creative tool for my artwork. My approach to painting draws upon tremendous positive energy reflected in the themes of hope and optimism infusing my work.
