Halinka Jakubowska

Halinka Jakubowska is a Polish-Belgian artist, living and working in Belgium. She was born in Slubice, a small town on the Polish-German border. Her family settled in Belgium in 1972, when she was a small child. She graduated in sculpture from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Liège, where she discovered the stonework in the Lambert Rocour’s studio. Halinka Jakubowska also works in bronze during her stays in Poland. She sometimes marries stone and bronze, which gives her works a certain elegance.

In 1998, the artist was awarded an Order of Cultural Merit by the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts of the Republic of Poland. In 2004, a sculpture by Halinka Jakubowska was given by the city of Liège to the President of Poland, Mr. Kwasniewski. Jakubowska also won the title of the “Pole of the Year” in 2011 in the field of CULTURE, awarded by the Polish Consulate in collaboration with the Council of the Polonia of Belgium and the Polish Expat Network Belgium.
