In May 2016, a 'Match Girl' Poster Art Print has been released. The mosaic image on the print is 12"x9". It is printed on 100lb satin cover stock paper, size 14"x11, leaving a 1" border all around. The print is titled and signed by Kasia under the image. It comes with a suggested frame/matting option Click Here to Buy
The mosaic is based on an image I painted a few years back while studying at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn. My original painting depicted the imaginary spaces I thought up while reading Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Match Girl" - one of the most memorable fairy tales from my childhood.
