Dorota Kudyba started painting at an early age, which allowed her to create visions that were impossible to reach in real life. She graduated from the University of Life Sciences in Lublin, Poland, with a degree in Horse Husbandry and Riding.
Dorota has won a prestigious Photography Competition by VWH in England, Reader's Digest Photo Competition 'Horse and Rider' and many more. Her photos and paintings have been published in several equine magazines in many countries.
In 2013, she became a judge of Digital Art Category at Ex Arte Equinus 6 - International Art Competition in USA. Digital technology allows her to generate magical, dreamy, and surreal worlds that show the beauty and majesty of horses. In addition, she works in traditional media like pastel, ink, pencil, and acrylics.
Currently Dorota lives in Zamosc, Poland, with her husband Hubert, their son Oliver, a dog, few cats and two mares, Begonia, and Anastasia. "Begonia is my guide angel and has never failed me in the 28 years I've had her, but Anastasia- the gray shire- is the muse and feeds my artistic palate'.
Dorota beautifully but simply states, 'I follow the horse’s path. The horse made me who I am. I belong to them."
