Could you tell us a little about yourself and your background?

Then I missed the creativity and the age of 35 I put everything on the head and went to study photography. Photography for 7 years allready. I am fine art freelancer, member of ZPAF (Union of Polish Art Photographers) I use elements of the most fabulous and dreamlike in my works. Always inspired by Art Nouveau and Surrealism. Movement as a form of positive emotions are my photographic business card. My passion is to creat art projects.
