I am a Polish artist living and working in the UK. I received the MFA from the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw, Poland and I am currently finalising the MA Photography course at Falmouth University in the UK.

I deal primarily with photography, painting and wearable objects.

My most recent experimental and form-oriented works are a blend of the analogue and digital photographic methods and processes. They're informed by a variety of an old and contemporary experimental photographic practices which share the same objectives - to reveal the forms and structures beyond the imagination and expose the complexity of the world beneath its surface appearance.
