Born in Sokolka, Poland, I grew up surrounded by nature. This region inspired me to tell stories through multiple means of expression: animation, illustration, and painting.

Graduated from La Cambre in Brussels, I directed three films during my studies: Slug and the snails (2012) co-directed with Gwendoline Gamboa, Grain d’amour (2013) and The Strawberry soup (2014). In 2015 I co-directed with Aline Quertain the short film The Teeny-weeny fox, produced by Folimage in France. My most recent work is the co-direction of the music video, The Skeleton Band, with Jessica Poon from Hong-Kong. The music is performed by Sara Lovell, an American artist known for her children’s songs. 

In the meantime I share my love for the creation with teenagers and children. I regularly supervise workshops in some centres and schools.

I live and work in Brussels.

Synopsis:

He’s hardly any bigger than a cockchafer. In fact, he’s way too small for a fox. No wonder he’d love to be a little larger. And he already knows how to fulfil his wish. Here comes the girl with the watering can and the incredible magical seeds again. Whatever she waters, it grows, thrives and sprouts. Alas, she likes the tiny fellow just the way he is. She can pick him up and put him in her pocket. But the teeny-weeny fox isn’t ready to give up yet.
