About me

I am a Polish born artist based in Ireland. After trying a range of media I kept coming back to watercolor which I love for its fluidity and unpredictable results. My watercolor paintings can be described as bold and fresh. You can find my paintings in private collections around the world and I have won multiple awards including first prize in Artfest, a competition that was held in Gorey in 2013 and silver award in Art in The Open in 2015.

My paintings capture the beauty around me, whether it be a peaceful landscape, flowers picked from my little garden or a portrait of an interesting person. What attracts me personally to a painting is light and the interplay of colors and shapes. So in my own work by concentrating on composition I designs a focal point and a path for the eye to wander around the painting.

Studio Move

Studio Move It's 4 years since I decided to become a full time artist. At the time I needed to revamp my website and also design a logo. I went with Kate Kos Studio as I thought at the time that I'd soon be moving out of my spare bedroom to a brand new studio...
