Whilst I love to draw the portraits of the characters I meet – being a little cheeky by nature, I occasionally like to turn the tables on my sitters. From children to elders, artists to nervous doodlers, I invite them if timing allows, to have a go at drawing me – and the results you'll discover above, delight me to no end! Interestingly, I feel like each one of these, despite being SO different, each capture something uniquely of me, and as a collective not only serve as a reminder of our experience together, but capture a little of me.
a little more about me
Born in Poland, I immigrated with my family to Australia at the age of eight.
Torn between my passion for both Art and Science in school, I decided to follow the creative path after being introduced to Graphic Design through work experience.
Since graduating Curtin University of Technology with a BA in Design, I have worked for myself as well as in numerous advertising agencies and boutique design studios in the roles of Art Director and Senior Graphic Designer.
Whilst pursuing my career in Advertising and Design, working with various and often exciting briefs, I have never lost the need to also create for myself, to be my own client, seeking out time to experiment and to express myself ... perhaps learn something along the way.
I love my 'work' - but it is about finding the best possible creative solution for my clients needs and satisfying 'the brief'. This is ultimately a very different process to that of creating purely for oneself.
Wearing the Artist's hat, I’m not directly trying to please anyone. And whilst it is obviously about the art, I try to remind myself it is also, perhaps in even a greater way, about that 'journey'.
Lifelines is one such project.
