Hello fellow visitor! So, do you want to know more about me?
Have a sit. Want some tea?
My name is Helen Hauswirt, but you can call me Gravika. I live in my beloved city – Warsaw. In relationship status with my city I would write that it’s complicated. For a living I’m a creative director-slash-designer-slash-illustrator.
I’ve made this blog alive to have my own place, to draw more often, to write from time to time about the subjects of my interests like fashion, design, art, Warsaw and wise women who inspire me in my life and work. Hope you gonna enjoy it ???? Please join me in this journey. I don’t know what the future will bring, but I know that changes are always good!
