Few words about me

                My journey through the world of art began in Warsaw, Poland in 1965. As a 7 year old I attended an art class with my best friend Marysia. The subject matter might not have been the most ambitious, but the passion for expressing myself through various forms of art remains.

Since that first art class I have dipped my fingers in many art forms like oil painting, mixed media, ceramic, mosaic, and photography. I love them all. To me, the most important thing about art is not the form, but the feeling. The feeling of being, of living.

                20 years ago I moved to the United States with my daughter Dorota. Soon after arriving here I got involved in the Chicago art scene. In 1991 Gosia Garbalska and I established a non for profit organization called Art Moves International, which was devoted to artist exchange between Eastern Europe and the United States. Later on I represented Polish artists as the curator of Gallery 58, and helped organize many exhibits and art events such as ‘Around the Coyote’.

After a long period of playing the role of art curator, I decided to focus on my own development as an artist.

Art is everywhere. Art has different forms and different languages, but there is no need for translation.

The paintings presented here are part of my journey, my life in the United States. Each of them represents a story, which I couldn’t explain using words. Few years ago I underwent a serious surgery and art became the best friend throughout the long healing process. And still is.

The series of photos is just a sample of my current work, which pays more attention to my inner journey. In the day of globalization, Internet, and consumption, I wanted to bring people’s attention back to something much more simple.
