I'm a watercolor artist based in Thoiry, France. I was born in Brzozow, Poland, got a diploma in sculpture at the College of Fine Arts in Krosno, studied art history at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow. In my art, I try to capture the simple beauty I find in ordinary objects and common places. The choice of subject is very important to me. It must both inspire me and be a challenge. Whether it is still life, architecture or other subjects, my desire is to always connect with the viewer and hopefully trigger their emotions.
