Bio

I am a graduate of a Danish Folk High School in Ringkøbing where I finished courses on Abstract Painting, Theatre and World Dance. I regard myself rather as a self-taught artist. I allow myself to step out of known frames, I do not constrict myself by the demands of any known schools. I like to practice openness and free expression in my art. I received my Bachelor in Spanish Culture and Language, my master in Cultural Studies at the University of Wrocław where I also received my PhD in the Institute of Performative Studies. I wrote a doctoral thesis on performative identities of people living in the XXI century. The search of one’s true identity is strongly reflected in my artistic work.
I immerse myself in the story of the painting as if it was the story from my own life which I now want to experience in a more reflective way. My artistic intention is to depict the self-empowerment of the modern woman, the stepping into her own forgotten power which now allows her to bloom and thrive in the most powerful and independent version of herself.
