🖥 Digital art

I am a Belgium-based Polish artist and illustrator who has been living with type 1 diabetes since 1995. I graduated Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw in 2014 with honors. Among others, I am creating diabetes art to inspire, motivate and support the diabetes community. 

In 2013 I experienced diabetes burnout and I wanted to do something for myself to change my perspective on diabetes. I started a personal blog bluesugarcube.blogspot.com and it quickly turned out that by sharing my story I am not only helping myself but also other people with diabetes. I continued my journey in diabetes advocacy which eventually led me to diabetes art. I am often implementing illustrations in my diabetes projects and supporting non-profit campaigns with my art.
