BIO

Catherine Karina Chmiel-Guglska

Education: university degrees in philosophy and art. Predilection: zoology. Occupation: artist and illustrator.

I like:
to draw
to laugh
to drink good tea
and to sing
I like little birds of fields and forests
and rabbits with enormous egos
I like spicy cookies
and mulled wine during long winter evenings
I like wind
and forest
and white trees
I like horses that happen to like me
I like cat’s purr
and yellow-fronted canary’s singing
I like redcurrants
and mushrooms
I like long talks with my friends, talks not only about Boromir
I like to wander
and to write stories
I like to sleep
And most of all I like to draw and draw and draw!
