A Few Words
My passion for art and graphic design started in my teenage years while I was studying fine art in Poland.
In 2015, as I welcomed my first child, I left my corporate job and became a Google Street View Photographer/ Contractor.
During this period I worked with: Topaz (Circle K), Applegreen, Kilkenny Design Centre, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, The Flower Factory, Voltaire Diamonds, multiple pubs, restaurants, cafes, beauty salons, shops and showrooms.
Receiving Higher Diploma in Science in Web Technologies (National College of Ireland) gave me the confidence to expand my services into graphic & web design, which quickly became my main focus.
In 2017, after experiencing some challenges in my personal life, I took a year-long career break and returned to education. After receiving an Accredited Professional Diploma in Personal, Leadership and Executive Coaching from Kingstown College and discovering the therapeutic effect of art, I started facilitating workshops around creativity and wellbeing.
In 2019, I opened my first Studio in Castlecomer Craft Yard, Co. Kilkenny. Within a few months, I moved to larger premises, where I created a unique venue designed to host events – Studio Eleven Creativity and Wellbeing Centre.
I was delighted to receive the Businesswoman of The Year Award in 2019 (Emerging New Business, Kilkenny Regional Winner & National Finalist).
In 2020, I published my first colouring book ‘The Botanical Affirmations Colouring Book: 12 Illustrations to Colour and Frame’.
I’m passionate about art and design from both the practical and the therapeutic perspective. I love helping others to visually express their story, either in business or their private lives.
I’m proud of the fact that the vast majority of my graphic & web design clients come from word of mouth referrals.
