born in 1978 in Warsaw, is an icon painter and contemporary artist. She was trained in Poland in the College dedicated to iconography. Studying ancient techniques of egg tempera and gold gilding. For many years she has been mainly working in a very traditional style learning the language of icon. When she came to Edinburgh she started exploring other ‘’languages’’ searching for more personal and contemporary ways of depicting similar reality.

Icon painting as a spiritual practice grows in silence and stillness.
