I have graduated from graphic design at the University of Arts in Poznan. I am currently an assistant at the Laboratory of Packaging Design for UAP.
I live and work in Poznan. I am an illustrator and a poster designer, I also design books, not only for children. So far there have been published several books with my illustrations including several authorial books: Pierwsze urodziny prosiaczka (published by Czerwony Konik), Drugie urodziny prosiaczka (published by Czerwony Konik) Marchewka z groszkiem (published by Czerwony Konik), Co dwie brody to nie jedna, kompendium wiedzy o zaroście (published by Alegoria).
In 2010, the book Mrówka wychodzi za mąż received an award for the Most Beautiful Book of the Year 2009 in the competition organized by the Polish Society of Book Publishers.
In 2013 in the competition Projekt Roku, organized by STGU (Association of Polish Graphic Designers), I got an award for a series of illustrations for the magazine Wysokie Obcasy.
I’ve been permanently cooperating with Pinocchio Theatre in Lodz, Silesian company Gryfnie and the portal hellozdrowie.pl.
In my free time I explore picture books for children and adults.
I love drawing food and piglets.
