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.

2018 Recap

2018 So a few days late but the time has come to say goodbye to the year that was 2018. How does one measure or assess a year? We all have our own ways whether it be checking bank balances or even counting any extra lines on your brow! But for me it's what I've...
