I have always been in contact with instruments and the violin making world, as my father himself is a violin maker in Poland. I studied cello from an early age, and at 16 I moved to Poznan to begin my violin making studies at a musical high school. After finishing high school, I became a violin making student at the Musical Academy in Poznan. I finished my bachelor studies and received a diploma with distinction.
During my studies, I was lucky to be offered an internship in Marcus Klimke’s workshop, in Angers, France. This was an eye-opening experience that continued when Marcus asked me to stay on working for him. I went back to school for a few months and then returned to France as his assistant. One year later, I also became the assistant of Andrea Frandsen, working part time in each workshop.
After two years of working in France and having taken part in two competitions, I decided to start working on my own. Those two years as an assistant shaped me into the luthier I am today.
I am now creating violins and violas for discerning musicians from different parts of the world.
