Born and raised in Poland, I migrated to the United Kingdom and later to Australia. I live and work in Ballarat and Eagle Point, East Gippsland, Australia. In 2012-14 I was one of the Multicultural Ambassadors of Ballarat and worked on number of artistic projects including photographic street murals We R You.

Living near nomadic life over the last 20 years, photography has become my constant companion documenting the lives of others around me. Bridging the two cultures, I find the Australian landscape and identity in strong juxtaposition to my Polish upbringing yet one I feel at home the most. My photography practice extends across photography, installation and community projects that aim to create a social dialog about the perceived ‘otherness of the other’ and challenge the mentality that those who are different from us are problematic. My recent body of work Dreamscapes is a pursuit to capture childhood dreams.
