I am a Polish born artist (b. 1983 Warsaw, Poland). I graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York in 2006 with a BFA in Painting. Currently I am living and working in Alamosa, Colorado where I am a full time artist.
I live in Colorado where I have ample opportunity to explore and absorb the beauty of the great outdoors. I hike, backpack and road trip here in the Rocky Mountains and beyond. I enjoy snapping photos while exploring – its a way for me to take a little piece from each place I love.
Once I’m back in the studio, some of my photos are reborn into glass impressions of the landscapes I explored on foot, where I was absorbed in the magic of mother nature and took away something special that I feel is worth sharing with my audience.
