I'm a tireless illustrator who creates bold and spirited pictures inspired by Polish poster art legacy and Naïve art. I have a dog that has a long muzzle and an MFA in printmaking.

I'm originally from Poland, but I flew across the pond some time ago looking for new adventures in the USA. My works have been presented internationally in many shows including Pictoplasma Berlin, Seoul International Book Fair and Pick Me Up London to name a few.
I would love to hear from you!
