In 2005 she graduated from the Eugeniusz Geppert Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław, majoring in Printmaking.
In addition to teaching, she deals with graphic design professionally. She is the author of numerous visual designs for exhibitions in the Contemporary Museum in Wrocław, the Municipal Gallery and BWA SIC.
The most important issues for me are all those connected with book design, especially its material and spatial aspects, which, apart from their purely literary content, create a message, influence the viewer and encourage interaction. All the achievements in this field, both my own and my students', make up the joint project BOOKmakers, which I co-create, among others, with M. Wosik and K. M. Wiśniewska.
