My real name is Justyna Kowalska but you can call me Sirena. You could say that I am a polish visual & theatre artist from Krakow but the truth is that I am a mermaid and I talk with the Ocean.

My art is an invitation to the quiet journey through the landscape of your own inner infinity, to the ocean of your dreams.

I am drifting between the Atlantic Ocean (La Palma Island, Spain) and the Mediterranian Sea (Sicily, Italy). Along the way, I paint and photograph sea, ocean and dreamscapes. My art reflects the journey I went to reconnect with Nature, regain faith in dreams and unleash my inner unicorns. I’d like to invite you to join the quest.


Sirena [born Justyna Kowalska] is a Polish abstract painter, photographer, and theatre artist currently based ik Krakow (Poland), La Palma Island in Spain and Sicily (Italy). After graduating from AST National Academy of Theatre Arts in Kraków in 2008, she worked as a director, actress, and playwright for national stages; she was also a screenwriter in polish radio and television. In 2018 she took a sabbatical to recover from burnout and depression. The journey around the Canary Islands led to the spiritual and artistic transition. Through art, Sirena is exploring the topic of reconnection with Nature and dreams. She paints abstract seascapes with the use of organic materials (sand, sticks, dried plants). In photography, Sirena focuses on poetic landscapes and mythological self-portraits

My art studio is in Nature.

Here is my artist statement.

At times I feel as if I am spread out over the landscape and inside things, and am myself living in every tree, in the plashing of the waves, in the clouds and the animals that come and go, in the procession of the seasons.

Carl Gustav Jung
