Once upon a time I studied architecture, but instead of building houses I started to work as a graphic designer. I’ve cut out from background lots of businesswomen with laptops, I have modelled dozens of 3D logos and I’ve composed them together more times then I want to remember. When we have moved to live in the country, my family and me, I have started to translate books about computer graphic and photography for a publishing house based in Silesia, Poland. Great job for a person, who likes to work at home, but I had to spend a lot of time with computer. I needed some change. My backbone needed a change. In the meantime our two sons have grown big enough to take care of themselves. There’s one good thing about children growing up: parents have more time. I have used my free time to explore possibilities of traditional drawing techniques – watercolor, ink, pencil and crayons. I don’t mean I never did a pencil drawing before, but now I’ve discovered I love to draw fairytale and fantasy scenes; dwarves, elves, pixies and other fantastic creatures. This adventure lasts for quite a few years. My hobby slowly changed into a new job, as I have illustrated a few stories and poems for children. Year by year I’ve been doing more work of this kind, and now it’s my main occupation – and I’m very happy about it!
