Agata was born and grew up in the south of Poland in the mountains.
She was drawing, painting since she was a little girl. After her diagnosis at the age of 16 years old her new vocation became apparent. She learnt that medicine was limited and that our power lies in the mind and luck of course.
Agata started painting at the hospital. It was a cathartic experience that brought relief and gave her tools to redefine herself. Painting became her medicine, tool of transformation and her escape from a crashing diagnosis. This is how Heads series was created which took Agata 10 years to complete.
Agata’s work is on a permanent exhibition at the Conrad Hotel in Westminster and at the Hospital Club in Covent Garden.
She had numerous shows in the UK, Germany, Poland, France, Italy and the USA. Agata’s work was selected for the Threadneedle Prize exhibition; ING Discerning Eye exhibition in Mall Galleries in London; the Sunday Times Watercolour exhibition; Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize Exhibition; Artist Annual Exhibition of the Royal Society of British Artists.
Artist also received Sally Woodward Award and Colin Barnes Prize.
