About Me

    I was born in Krakow, Poland in 1981 where I lived and was educated until I moved to England in 2005. After a brief time working as a physiotherapist on NHS Neuro-Intensive Care Units, I decided to completely change direction and embarked on a journey of art and discovery, with a special interest in Art and History.

 

Firstly, I studied Latin, ancient theatre history and archaeology with the Open University. Between years 2013-2018 I have studied Art Photography at the University of Brighton, graduating with a BA (Hons) and subsequently an MA. In September 2020 I completed another MA programme in Jewish History and Culture at the University of Southampton.

The focus of my work has changed with time, and I have settled in specializing in sculptural installation, photography, moving image and video, sound and artist’s books.

 

I have exhibited widely and internationally, including: Krakow FestivALT (‘Memory Futures’) 2021; Krakow FestivALT (‘Artyści z Krakowa’) 2020, Warszawa Foksal (‘Jerusalem’) 2019 – Poland; Southampton The Hub (‘Dancers’) 2017, Brighton A5 and Grand Parade Gallery (‘From the flow of appearance’) 2016 and 2018, London Shape Open 2015, Winchester Umbrella Creative Network (‘Cathedral’) 2013, Bath Fringe Arts 2019 – UK; Toronto Art Museum (‘Shelley Art Peterson’) – Canada; New York City SeeMe (‘Oneself’) 2014, LA MASH Gallery (‘Nature Worship’) 2018, Houston Moody Gallery (‘Relations') 2016 – US; Berlin BaGL (‘Art Fair') 2014 and 2015, Munich PACKS Gallery (‘Alchemiker’) 2018 – Germany.

 

I was awarded the Art Gemini Prize in 2014, and 1st place in the Krakow National Academic Writing awards, and 2nd place for Creative Writing.
