Alicja Wieczorek is an artist, designer, architect and an interior designer. Her passion is to create beauty within human environment. When she was 11 years old, she had drawn a portrait of her father (at left). Her talent was recognised and in the following years she developed her skills by painting at different art schools. At the same time she chose a career as an architect. After years of working as a project architect, she decided to start her own company. Over the years she had realised that a human factor is essential for her. Alicja now works on a smaller scale (interior design), where she can be closer to people. This, and her endless creative capabilities, make her human.
