Explore the Colorful World From Kasia's Window
Artist With Down Syndrome
Don't Forget About Me!
- Kasia Puciata 1961 - 2004
Kasia was born with Down Syndrome in Warsaw, Poland. She was brought-up in a loving family. She was a seeker, an ambitious individual, seeking an outlet for self expression. Once fascinated by something, she never gave-up and pursued it often for years, even if she couldn’t master it like she wanted to. Her interests included music, playing guitar, knitting, dancing, practicing her signature and alphabet and painting. Her knitted masterpiece took a decade to complete and is an absolute, complete and holy piece of art.
