A happy wife and a mom of a 4- year-old son.
Involved in painting, installation, spatial form, enamel and jewellery.
She has dealt with artistic actions in public space since 2011 as a painter, performer and author of ephemeral and stable installations. Color stain as supplement, disruption or balance of an existing phenomenon dominates in all her projects. What has been most appealing to her, is geometry of grey urban spaces inhabited by human emotions. The reason of her periodic “runaway” from the atelier to public space was solitude, and her inspiration for the „Un-grey the City” project and creating colourful puddles was ugliness and neglect of surrounding urban space.
She is an artist curious about the world, a woman not afraid of challenges, a painter sensitive to the beauty of the surrounding space.
