Video summary: Time lapse of a watercolor painting called "The Reach", an energetic exchange of hands in different poses.

Adventure, curiousity, and always being creative.

My name is Karolina. I'm a Polish-Canadian, and I originally immigrated to Canada in 1998. I come from a very small town with its own castle, and now I live in Montreal. I've lived in a few different cities in Eastern Canada.

I've been making art since I was a little kid, however I decided to get "serious" about it as a teenager. I always wanted to work for myself, to be a business owner, so naturally taking commissions as an artist started when I was 14. That was also when I participated in my first juried art exhibition, and sold my first drawing. I started drawing with plain HB pencil on old scrap paper. Nothing fancy! I had a great art teacher in high school, who encouraged me to try every medium he had in stock. This is how I ended up doing acrylics, oils, pastels, charcoal, watercolour....sculpture, pottery even. Thanks Mr. Payette!

I went to art school at NSCAD University in Halifax, but I ended up taking film production. Yet another medium to add to my list, and what in actuality is now my job. By incident, I also learned to knit and worked in various yarn stores during university.

The things I like doing in my free-time include: hiking, reading, exploring, watching films, baking, writing, weight lifting, and trying new experiences. I'll do anything at least once, why not? I love psychology, technology, food, and nature. I'm a happy owner of a prosthetic hip since 25. It gave me my life back.

One of my most important values is my freedom. I also see success as the effort in trying and learning, the process, not "can't" or failures. That said, I know life is hard and I'm pretty down to earth.

Feel free to check out my other social media below if you haven't already. I post work-in-progress pics at random and I livestream from my studio.
