Welcome to my site!
My name is Karolina Bochenek. I was born in 1987. In 2012 I graduated as a Master of Science in Architecture and Urbanism at the University of Technology in Cracow. At the end of my study I tried to combine my two passions: architecture and sailing, which resulted in me choosing Naval Architecture as a subject of my diploma.
After that I had been travelling and sailing for almost a year. I visited many wonderful places including Carribean Islands when I spent more than half a year, working as a mate on a private sailing yacht. I would like to share with all these possitive emotions and happiness that I expierienced there!
Now I live and work in the private stable in Denmark, as my life turned towards horse riding again, which is another hobby of mine. Most of my free time I spend on painting and sport activities. In the meantime I am making plans for the next journey!
I love to experiment and learn so I treat painting as my personal journey around the world. It can be anything that inpires me: simple thought, dream, event or just a view… For me travelling, discovering new places and meeting new people is the best way to draw inspiration from life! I also like to read novels and study maths. I enjoy swimming, playing tennis and squash, trekking in mountains and practising yoga. Recently I got intrested in kite surfing and slackline! I wish there were more hours in a day, and more days in a year… I am trying to find a perfect balance in life! 🙂
I started to paint few years ago, in a first place just to pass the painting course for my study. It went pretty well so I was experimenting more and more, just for fun. The more I painted the more important it became, giving me a chance to find fulfilment as an artist. Now it is a great passion that allows me to share my experiences and ideas with you.
Now I invite you to the gallery of my previous work. Enjoy!
