She specializes in painting, fiber arts and illustration. Urszula has participated in several group exhibitions in Poland and abroad. Her first solo exhibition took place in ZPAP Gallery in Gdańsk in 2016.

What we love about Urszula

By overlapping techniques of illustration and painting, Urszula creates vast industrial landscapes with names like “Railway Station” and “Powerhouse IV” that transport your mind to these favorite places she immortalizes on canvas. Solid structures and sweeping scenes stretch softly beyond the reaches of the dimensions of her beguiling work.
