Maja Kowalczyk artist with Down syndrome calligraphy

For as long as I can remember, Maja has always liked to create. This kind of activity was making her happy, relaxed, and fulfilled.

Thanks to Paulina Maksjan, Maja’s art teacher at school, the art of creating visuals turned out to be something more than just a hobby. The collection of paintings grew rapidly, and we decided to organize an exhibition at Pożyteczna cafe, one of Warsaw’s most important community centers promoting art created by and for people with disabilities.

Recently, Maja’s frequent art meetings with Paulina Maksjan were about exploring new possibilities. And there it is! Calligraphy!

Maja is now 24, at the age when she wants to express herself more than ever before. She wants to say she is just like all other young people: she needs to be loved, accepted, and adored. And she is expressing it in her calligraphy works.

I helped Maja submit a few works to popular online stores with designs from independent artists: Redbubble, Zazzle, and Amazon Merch. The designs (a few visualizations are shown below) are available on multiple products, from t-shirts to tote bags, stickers, mugs, wall art, and home decor.

If you decide to buy any of these works, please keep in mind that all artist profit we will donate to disabled children from Ukraine.
