About me

I’m Czech artist and anthropologist living and creating in Čtyřkoly, Czech Republic. 

I am trying to tell a story through my artworks, open uncomfortable topics, reflect and analyse some sociocultural phenomena and break taboos. I focus predominantly on motherhood, spirituality and sexuality and my art features almost exclusively female characters who embody these stories.  
I am also creating therapeutic artworks, that are helping to heal traumas, dealing especially with the experience of baby loss and death of a loved one in general.

My art exhibitions are sometimes also kind of psychomagical acts with wider message and overlap into spiritual~ritualistic experience.  
I exhibited besides Czechia also in Peru, Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Germany and many more… (as listed here). 

I am using wide combination of techniques and experimenting with different kind of paints, pens and substances on photograph, canvas (or any kind of suitable surface).

As an anthropologist I finished one fieldwork in Morocco and I am currently finishing my dissertation about fieldwork in Peru, where I also worked for several years as a tour guide for travel agency Alvarez. My anthropological education very deeply influences my artistic expression, however art gives me much more expressive freedom. 

In years 2020 – 2023 I was also an art director at 
Beseder Gallery, where I curated and organized art exhibitions and wide range of cultural events, including the art exhibition for the 80th birthday of academical sculptor Kurt Gebauer, two art exhibitions of Otto Placht in cooperation with the Peruvian embassy and many more. 

I am currently working again as a tour guide, this time at Costa Rica, as PhD candidate at the Charles University and I also cooperate with care service Zůstat spolu doma (stay together at home) as consultant and canis-felino therapist with my animals.
