When I began studies of art history, Prof. Jan Ostrowski said: ‘An art historian needs to speak a few languages and read in at least five foreign languages.’ I took his words to heart and I find a way to read in every language if I need to get into a text. Please, find more about my language skills in the ‘Languages‘ post.


I love to travel. I spent my childhood travelling throughout Poland with my family. As a teenager I began to explore Europe with friends which led me to my first job – a tour-leader.

As a tour-leader I was responsible for  arranging accomodation, indicating trip routes and guiding groups.

As an art curator , I also arranged business trips and artworks transport (domestic and international), including insurance matters. Now, I make trips for my own pleasure, such as the Japanese map exhibition in Leiden (Netherlands) or the MeasureCamp ‘unconference’.  Not to mention holiday in Italy or Ireland.

It’s a pleasure to travel and to show the charms of various places to others. Please find all my destinations in the ‘Tourism‘ post.


In Poland we say: ‘Speech is silver but silence is golden’, but how can we describe writing? It must be a combination of them both. I’ve been writing ever since I was able to hold a pen. When I was five, I found that I wanted to be a book writer and I did everything to become an author. And so I do write and publish. You may find my publication list in the ‘Writing and Publications‘ post. I love to play with text structure and various styles, adapting them to the required function.
