I was born and grew up in Warsaw, Poland where I studied fine art. When I moved to New York City, I earned an MA degree in Psychology and published a children's book called "Life is a Wiggle". Inspired by New York life and people I soon discovered Photography to be my passion and pursuit.
I finished a One Year Conservatory in Photography from the New York Film Academy in 2014.
From September 2015 to May 2016, I was an event photographer at Musee Magazine. I was a recipient of the 2014 Honorable Mention from the International Photography Awards for
Fine Art Portrait, as well as the 2015 Honorable Mention for the One Shot International Photography Awards Home-Perception competition. The focus of my photographs are people. Each person is so unique and interesting whether in the context of portrait, fashion or editorial photography. I am here to bring that uniqueness out.
