I am a Polish-born and Brighton-based visual artist. I work freelance at my studio at the Phoenix Brighton . I graduated from Glass and Fine Art Painting but now I work not with glass which is precious and hard and brittle but , ironically, with scavenged and mostly soft materials. I work on my own as well as collaborative projects which are often site-specific and more recently-performance based. I also work to Fine Art and illustration commissions. I combine my Art and Design practice with teaching . Here is a 20 minute presentation about my work which I delivered at the Phoenix in January this year.

Most recently, I have been involved in an Arts Council funded 6-months project, which saw me working with a poet, Maria Jastrzebska, a film maker, Wendy Pye and a composer Peter Copley to re-imagine the story of the Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen. It culminated in a pilot site-specific art/video/life music and spoken word event at the Basement of the Regency Town House. For more info on this project, please check our blog:

And here is a short film about our project.

And here is a joined presentation on the Snow Q project which I delivered with my collaborator and friend, a photographer and film maker, Wendy Pye:

I also belong to the Fabula Collective, a group of artists and designers connected by a desire to tell stories through images, objects and text.
