ABOUT ME

During the war my granddads fought on opposite sides of the front line. They were real enemies. Next generation, my parents, they loved each other very much and with this love they tried to erase this fatal past. There was something inside me that didn't allowed me to fully identify with people and the place where I lived. And all my life has become a search for places, forms of artistic expression, a search for a way to establish a dialogue with another person through art. I visited many places, met interesting people there, had many conversations, but each time none of these places brought satisfaction. And none of these places become my home. Neither noisy America, nor native Germany even place in which my adventure with art began - Poland. It wasn't until I settled in Crete that I felt that I had finally found a real home. Crete healed me. Her nature, history and people who live here became an inspiration in the next stage of my artistic journey.
