Artist Statement 

PL
Poprzez instalacje, rysunki, malarstwo potrafię najlepiej oddać emocje. Poszukuję prostej, lecz niebanalnej, bogatej w symbolikę formy. Moje prace mają często charakter ikonograficzny. Każdy obraz jest powiązany z osobistą historią. Fascynują mnie relacje z ludźmi.Ilustruję własne subiektywne spojrzenie. Tworzenie traktuję jak notatnik. W projektach umieszczam rzeczy, o których chciałabym zapomnieć albo chcę zapamiętać.

EN
I can best express my emotions through instalations, drawing, paintings. I am looking for a simple but original, symbolic form. My works are often iconographic. Each image is associated with a personal story. I am fascinated by relationships with people. I illustrate my own subjective view. I treat creation like a notebook. On the projects I put things that I would like to forget or want to remember.
