DOCTOR OF FINE ARTS, ARCHITECT
I have a long experience working on artistic and architectural projects in Singapore, Poland and Austria. I have balanced my passions for design and fine art with a multidisciplinary approach to both. My work spans several disciplines including painting, sculpture and design. Having a deep passion and engagement with art and teaching, I completed a Phd in Fine Arts at the Institute of Fine Arts University of Humanities and Science UJK in Poland. For a few years, I have provided mentorship and coaching for students supervising their skills, knowledge and portfolio development.
