My Story

My name is Joanna Kaminska-Wujek and I am an artist and designer.

My work is a continuous spiritual journey that has, up to now, brought me from Poland through New York to Ireland.

My style is naive, authentic and this, together with my individual view of the world, influences my art. My illustrations are often daily scenes, conversations overheard or situations seen. Anything could be a starting point for an illustration: somebody’s facial expression, a title in the newspaper, a gesture or a particular song.

Basically, I create what I feel is true to me and what my intuition tells me. My work is inspired by authenticity, reality, identity, beauty, people and life generally.

My illustrations are often quirky, thought-provoking and sometimes nostalgic. I picture moods and beauty and like Henrie Cartier-Bresson I try to capture “the decisive moment”. I am very observant and enjoy illustrating life.

Knowing that at times my art heals souls or makes people laugh is very important to me and makes me happy.
