About Me

Learn About Me & My Passion

Monika Kuropatnicka-Marciniak

Born under the sign of Leo in Gdynia. That`s where I live and work. Inspired by nature, dreams, fairytales and poetry. The art I create gives mi a chance to express my emotions, my every day joyous moments and sadness, is the memory of the carefree childhood when my creative selfdid not accept the book without pictures.

Ever since I remember I always wanted to draw and create illustration that would portray the world in a more mysterious and magical light. My dream and my goal is to paint pictures that will impact other people`s senses and help them move their imagination to explore the stories through not only words but also colors, shades, shapes and tints.
