I was born in Olsztyn, Poland. I graduated from the Nicolaus Copernicus University in Toruń with a degree in Polish Philology. After a few years I completed another full-time university course at College of Foreign Languages in Częstochowa with a degree in Applied Linguistics with English Translation. I embarked on a successful career as a university teacher and since 2002 I have been working as a lecturer at the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn. I am a self-taught artist and my interest in photography arose a few years ago from a strong desire for self-expression. However, I have been always receptive to modern arts especially abstract and minimalist forms, which is very often reflected in my works. While taking photographs I also reach for presenting vague and transient images such as shadows or reflections. I am fascinated with the fact that one is able to freeze the world that is absolutely intangible, but at the same time, it is inevitably and irreversibly non-existent without the actual physicality of things. Thanks to such a shift in perception I am able to enter countless parallel worlds which are close at hand every day, however, we rarely realize that we live in their immediate vicinity.
