I am a Polish Canadian artist who a few years ago moved from Toronto to Berlin. In my early education

I studied classical dance at National Ballet School in Toronto and for over two decades actively

participated in the performing arts industry. Through the years I gained experience as performer,

choreographer, designer, assistant director, manager and administrator. While continuing my

performance career I studied graphic design at Ontario College of Art and Design University graduating

with a Bachelor of Design diploma. Ever since, I have worked on several freelance design projects and

deepened my visual art practice, which I hope to continue in the future.
