I'm a graphic designer/illustrator specializing in designs for kids. My work is being used for publishing, animation, iPhone/iPad apps, advertising and branding.  

I got my MA in painting at Fine Arts Academy in Gdansk. During studies I worked as an illustrator and a graphic designer in literary magazine. After graduating, I start to work as an illustrator and a background artist at GS Animation, where I was happy to create an illustrated world for animation. I'm also a designer of backgrounds for Mami Fatale’s animated series which was created in Gdansk.

After seven years of wonderful adventure in animation industry passion for illustration has led me to pursue a career as a freelance artist. Illustrating books for kids is my calling.

I'm a seafood lover and an adopted dog owner. I currently live in Poland with my one year old daughter Helenka and husband Filip.
