About

I was born in 1990, spent most of my life in Gliwice which is in the south of Poland. I have recently graduated with my master degree from the Academy of Fine Arts in Katowice, Poland.

My main focus is book design & illustration, although I do many other projects as well.

I love to fill the daily life with interesting, well designed items. I have painted on walls and cookie boxes, designed custom playing cards and calendars. I enjoy creating spaces and decorating them with clear, well balanced colors. I am no fan of traditional art created for itself, I prefer it to be useful as well as beautiful.

In books I find a connection between art (beauty) and design (utility). A book is an item that combines both. And as such it is my favourite of all times, as every picture, painting or cut-out can become an illustration and gain universal utility.

I have a small canadian graphic design business and my own cookie brand, too.


Feel free to contact me if you need more information or you feel like I am just the designer you are looking for!
