I was born in Poland. After graduating from the Silesian University in Katowice, Poland with a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts, I worked as a cartoon animator and a graphic designer. Since relocating to England, I work predominantly in the medium of painting. Currently, I live with my family in Bangor, North Wales, and take part in various art workshops, exhibitions and competitions.
