I fell in love with weaving when I was a young student of architecture faculty.
When my daughters were little, I spent a lot of time at home. That was the time, when I started to weave my first tapestry Reeds of Mazurian Lakes. And that is how I started, without even realizing it, a series: NATURE.
Nowadays, being a grandma, I live in a magical forest of the little village of Wilga (Masovia, Poland) where I built a wooden house. I designed it myself and blended it into the gorgeous forest of pine trees. The surrounding nature inspired me to create other tapestries.
Inspired by the Italian architecture, I started to weave a tapestry depicting the town of San Gimignano. My tapestries from the series: ARCHITECTURE portray how I view the relations between humans and the surrounding structures, similarly as described in the book by Alain de Botton The Architecture of Happiness.
Both – Architecture as well as Nature may be welcoming, soothing, safe and beautiful, and – on the other hand – they can be dangerous, unfriendly and repulsive.
Welcome to the world of my passion.
