I draw from life and make the world a more beautiful place. Born in Poland, raised in Australia and living in the USA, I explore visual patterns and choose to communicate in ways that are uplifting, unifying and beautifingy. What is life for than to make it more beautiful for each other?
Growing up in communist, Poland in the 80’s - my childhood was made special by my parents fashion house and my grandparents’ farm. Our 4 person immigration to Australia in the 90’s was an adventure that recreated all of us, and something I would repeat 10 years later solo, as I began to travel independently. The journey from Melbourne’s prestigious art school to work, study and create through the United States and abroad was electrifying. I can proudly call home to many cities, and hold dear the people I’ve met who have touched my heart in New York, Paris, Miami, Chicago, Las Vegas, Rhyiad, Dubai, Amsterdam, Krakow, Los Angeles and most of all Melbourne.
What continues to fascinate me is visual impact across cultures and its ability to reach our core. My practice has been about creating line work and applying color, which I’ve evolved from various mediums such as paper, canvas, silk and other fabrics. My experimentation with mediums is led by my desire to both create visual beauty and ignite inner vibration. I like to explore sensations, energy and flow in context of contemporary humanity and put that into a form of visual art that can be looked at, felt and experienced. My wearable art is often created in collaboration with my Mother who has taught me everything about a dress.
There are creations from all significance in my work and perhaps you will see yourself in one of my works or recognize your name as it’s title. I have loved you and I love you still. Do I want to create an artwork for you and your space? Absolutely, it’s what I’m her for. Currently working in California, I’m exploring masculine and feminine energy as I reflect the world around me.
My friends call me, Zuz.
