My childhood home smelled like linseed oil and turpentine. My dad painted. J. Sokołowski’s and W. Puchalski’s books were scattered wherever they were accessible, always being paged through. When I was 12, I stumbled upon J. Sokołowski’s “Zwierzęta z mojego szkicownika” (trans. note: “Animals From My Sketchbook”) and I decided to become like him, a drawing ornithologist. Back then I was drawing a ton, and the only theme of my drawings were animals: bred parrots, insects, newts. Later on my sketchbook became more and more populated by people and items. After a while, I noticed that while drawing, I was discovering an invisible new world. Everyday it was closer and closer, but everytime it managed to drift off, and even worse, grow larger.
I finished art studies in Cracow in 1986 specialising in relief printing. I then started to take part in periodic exhibitions: : Konkursie Graficznym im. Józefa Gielniaka in Jelenia Góra, Quadriennale Drzeworytu i linorytu Polskiego in Olsztyn, Biennale Małej Formy Graficznej i Ekslibrisu in Ostrów Wielkopolski, Międzynarodowym Konkursie Graficznym na Ekslibris in Gliwice, Międzynarodowym Biennale Ekslibrisu Współczesnego in Malbork. I also took part in a number of foreign exhibitions: in Boston, Rome, Maastricht, Havirov (Czechia), Bitola (North Macedonia). I also organised numerous individual exhibitions, and took part in joint exhibitions in Koszalin, Warsaw, Łódź, Opole.
