full figure mini portraits of female painters
100 Paintresses. 100 Art Worlds. ONE goal - to paint. This project is a series proving our uniting love and devotion to pure Painting. Pure - complex message. What we create is not only a beautiful product to please the audience. Each painting is for us something unique and personal, evoking higher feelings in the receiver. To such an art “box” we pack a different point of view. A separate universe. Our souls - as beautiful creatures we are.

the rite of spring

full figure portraits of Polish National Ballet dancers
A tribute to the most revolutionary ballet, "Le Sacre du Printemps" (1913) by Nijinsky, to Stravinsky's music. The series is based on the choreography and costume reconstruction research of Millicent Hodson and Kenneth Archer. Each painting reflects poses taken from the original choreography. Dancers are divided into two groups according to the two acts of the stage performance – day and night that shows the journey of the Sun and Moon and leads to the romantic finale – a sacrifice of a Chosen Maiden that dances herself to death.

Portraits of American legends.
New York inspires always and everyone. "Supernova" is a portrait series depicting stars that changed various aspects of American culture...forever, but faded too early. "Supernova" is showing them alive and also in the moment of their quite unique deaths. I’m exploring the parts of their often complex personalities that fascinates me.

venus // mars. are men from mars and women from venus?

full figure portraits of strong personalities who stretch the gender conventions.
This project portraits my friends who happen to be a little different than the majority. Their looks and occupations very often stand in opposition to social expectations and life roles. For me they represent a unique beauty - both the inner and the outer one. It is really so important to divide what gender is? Fighting with stereotypes they are true to themselves no matter the outer world's opinions. With the trust of a pure child they bravely allow us to enter their own galaxy.

stereotypes vs identity

full figure portraits depicting stereotyping
I create a dialogue about stereotypes and identity by underlining that every single one of us is different. And it is good. The nude serves the role of timelessness, intimacy and the possibility of sending a universal message. By creating a puzzle for the receiver, I invite to observe what you may find important and therefore provoke thoughts and feelings. The mind can not exist without the heart and vice versa. I challenge you to look into your nooks and crannies of prejudice.

portraits of fascinating souls
I have always been fascinated by people - their nature, instincts, thoughts, emotions and the resulting behavior. I love to watch surroundings.
