Lilla graduated from Architecture at Wroclaw University of Technology in Poland, where the coursework, beside the design subjects, included a generous amount of art history, drawing, painting and sculpture. She worked as an architect, in Poland and in England, before gradually becoming more active in the art world and focusing on painting.
“My art is about my experience of life and about experiencing it with wonder and joy. It is about finding poetry and magic in the places I visit and the objects I own or happen to come across.
I usually paint in oils, using the alla prima, wet-on-wet technique. My paintings are colourful and rich in texture. I hope that viewers will respond to my art emotionally and perceive a little bit of the same poetry that moved me to create.”
