My name is Monika. I was born and I come from beautiful magical and unusual region in Poland- Warmia-Masuria district.
Living close to the nature gave me strong ideological base to thinking of art in ecological way. Wildness of nature forests, lakes and rivers, shaped my creative attitude.
I deal with painting, objects, collages, assemblages, ceramic, crafts and jewellery.
I often use industrial waste found on skips, streets, dumpsters and urban spaces, but also natural waste (part of trees, plants, stones, bones, sticks, shells, feathers) from forests, meadows, rivers and oceans.
I really enjoy reusing, upcycling, making hybrids from wasted parts, discovering new meanings of things, and giving new life to unuseless materials.
I currently live and work in Oxford, UK, where I improve my creative skills, inspired by Oxfordshire's nature and diversity of society.
