About Me

Living in Lodz, an old city of textile industry in Poland, I create subtle pieces of art in every form possible. From small ornaments to great wall hangings, everything I create starts from a scrap of textile. It is a contemporary way to involve art in our everyday life, to let it into our houses, on the tables. My creations are mostly inspired by the charm of small things and are made to give the same feeling of beauty. See my works to see inspiration coming from nature, food, kitchen or... old stories!
