Hello & welcome to my online portfolio
I originally come from Poland, where I gained MA at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw. Now, settled in UK, I illustrate from a slightly shabby studio in Bristol. I get inspired by looking at random awesome things, like Japanese line-art, Tarantino movies, pot plants, tigers or vintage matchboxes. I am addicted to coffee and music, without them projects just don’t seem to come together so well.
The process always starts with pencil, then gets reworked using watercolour, pen and pastels and then the image is scanned for the final digital touch-up of colour. I am very talkative and optimistic, and I think it often shows in my illustrations, which tend to be cheerful, can be quite detailed and filled with tangents and hidden mini-stories.
I am a member of the Association of Illustrators, have been featured in 3x3 and Communication Arts annuals and a number of international exhibitions. A jigsaw I illustrated won an award for the best toy for young children in Poland in 2012 in ‘games’ category.
Please do not hesitate to drop me an email if you would like to collaborate on a project or to just say hello.
