She draws inspirations from everyday life. She adores photographs of Steve McCurry. His photographs are the inspiration for lots of her works. She has always admired Malczewski, same as Podkowiński, Mehoffer and the brothers of Gierymski. Until nowadays there has been longing in her for staring at a work which is absolutely perfect for her. She never misses an opportunity to see Turner „live“ in London.   In Vienna she always checks current exhibitions at Albertinie, the Leopold Museum. There, she admires the abundant collection of Freud’s paintings.

From the moment she discovered Karin Jurick at Pinterest she is her faithful fan. For her she painted a figure of a girl on the beach, and the painting is a part of a private collection.

NATCHNIENIE

Her own children and the surrounding world provide inspirations for her. Paining of figures of children, animals, beach scenes, meadows, trips from common family walks brings her joy.

She always paints on Mondays.

She is prodded to activity by the thought of Miłosz „that, hardly written, losses its meaning“ -  from this there is a need to paint, to record every-day reality with a brush.
