After completing dual study in the Visual Arts and Music colleges in Opole, she attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, at the Faculty of Painting, Graphic Design and Sculpture. She graduated with distinction in 1984. Her work reveals her multiple interests through a variety of media: installation, photography, design, drawing, sound and architecture. The artist’s observations of nature are reflected in the way she introduces light into her work. Her installations in public spaces are monumental, always closely related to the structure of architecture. The artist’s most recent projects explore how sound moves through the different membranes of architectural spaces. Through contiguous compositions she reveals the many facets hidden in buildings.
