ZOFIA KOSTYRKO

“Born in communist Warsaw, I grew up surrounded by the Polish avant-garde theatre and visual arts. It gave me a great classical art education, hunger for beauty and learning, and rapid problem-solving skills. Moving solo to the USA I graduated from college and built a family and a career in themed entertainment at Disney Imagineering in LA. In 2000 I went independent to start giving back to my community and the world at large by creating and sharing the beauty in all directions.”
