„Of course there must be lots of Magic in the world”, he said wisely one day, „but people don't know what it is like or how to make it. Perhaps the beginning is just to say nice things are going to happen until you make them happen. I am going to try and experiment.” Frances Hodgson Burnett, The Secret Garden
By profession I am a talent recruiter, living in Warsaw, Poland. In my spare time I illustrate (genre & fairy-tale scenes). I like magical, parallel and fantasy worlds. I draw people, characters from fairy tales and animals. I create extraordinary illustrations that are the combination of a careful observation of the real world and my imagination. I use various techniques: pencil, crayons, pens, paints, ink which I often mix with digital drawing & photography. Associations usually help me in creating illustrations. I get inspired by the moment, by the reality that surrounds me, by the history of art, by old masters paintings and illustrators, classical literature (e.g. Russian, English, German, American), movie soundtracks, smells or memories.
