“My love for making things has always been a huge part of who I am… As a child and teenager, I learned to create things to sell which developed my passion to create an emotional connection with people through my work.”

“I come from a small town huddled among the woods and the lime rock of the Jura region, southern Poland. For those among whom I grew up with pursuing art and being a painter was something completely unfathomable. I think it was easier for them to picture someone wanting to be an astronaut rather than a painter.”

Night walk by Robert Bubel

“Each hike is an adventure and this is mirrored in each map. It’s really refreshing to hand draw each map and take things back to basics.”

“My illustrations are simple, colorful and I think they might put a smile on some people’s faces. And I just love that!”

“Season change intensifies the memories and feelings, whether it’s happiness or sadness, I welcome both.”

"My dad knew that I wanted to be an architect since I was 13! I was doing some sketches overlooking the bay of our hometown but as a birds-eye view. The sketch was describing how people moved and how the sea and the land came together. He saw them, and being an engineer, he told me that I would probably enjoy being an Architect."

"When I was 10 years old, I designed a professional 35mm SLR camera. My family never had money, but we were culturally and artistically rich. I always appreciated beautifully crafted and designed things — long before I ever knew there was something called Design."

"I was 25 years old: behind me, the metaphysical Venice where I wrote my PhD Thesis on the Art Biennial; in front of me Milano, an active volcano: inclusive, crowded and so challenging to me, new to journalism."

“Learn as much as you can about materials and production, how to implement your design ideas, and don’t take no for an answer.”

My law degree led me nowhere but Journalism. I get fascinated by abstract art and people’s stories. I admire anyone who tries. I would do anything for my dog.
