Yolanta Gawlik

I was born in Poland where I studied in the Academy of Art and Design in Lodz. Since 1990 I have been living and working in the UK. Now I work in my Krowji studio in Cornwall and I am studying on the MA Authorial Illustration course in Falmouth University. My paintings and prints are in private and corporate collections. I am a member of the South London Women Artists and the Association of Polish Artists in UK (APA).
