This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information, submitted 2014, is from the artist, who lives in Magnolia, Texas.

Artist Statement: My first works of art I have created as a child depicted horses. Drawing them, I thought I could feel every muscle of the horse I drew. It was far from perfect but the feeling remains. Even today, after many years, my favorite subject is Horses. For me the horse, beside the beautiful gracious body, is a symbol of a free soul, loyalty and trust. Especially I'm fascinated by their eyes. An eye, as old people say, is a window to a soul.

When you look in their trustful eyes, you can see they want to connect with us and are always as a vivid shadow that needs to be close, to follow and to please, and blindly don't expect anything in return - just hopes for love and simple friendship for life. 

Over the past ten years my work has transformed from a semi-realistic, simplified close-ups of my subjects, into a floating, colorful "Mottled" compositions. 

My "Mottled Horses" - Equine art developed since 2003-4 in my new "Mottled" style that merges abstract and expressionism with a touch of realism. The subject is created on a colorful abstract background to express feelings, often shown as a close-up, with special attention to the eyes and focusing on specific moods and composition. Often with secondary transparent image/s to show movement or specific scenario.

In my paintings, I don't intend to replicate photo-realistic objects, but to capture the utmost uniqueness of life. Illustrating my subjects, I often pay no attention to exact shapes, textures, or real colors and emphasize just on a small fragment, sometimes a very tiny detail, in order to insinuate an idea. That approach leads me to concentrate on what I feel and not what I see or know about the subject. Also, it helps me to effectively use visuals to depict a story about my subject.  My art captures just an indication of a subject to leave the rest for my viewer's imagination to create the unique picture.
"Mottled Horses" started new trend in equine art, based on a colorful and abstract foundation, more and more seen in contemporary art.

Biography: I was born in Poland. After graduating from the School of Visual Arts in Gdynia, Poland, for a short time, I have studied drawing and painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Gdansk, Poland. I've continued my education at the Houston Community College toward Computer Science /Computer Graphics Major. I've worked in Digital Graphics, Graphic Design, Multimedia, Design, and continue to develop my artistic passion. In 2004 I started my full time career in fine art. My art passion, education, broad experience, and professional carrier in commercial art helped me to broaden my art skills, and to identify as well as develop my own means of artistic expressions.
