A Chicago native, Alan Adilman has a BA in Industrial Design from the Center of Creative Studies in Detroit. From there he has built his creative aesthetic and design sense. Following a 4-year stint working in Japan for Mazda as a conceptual car designer, Alan created a company that designs one-of-a-kind products, Propeller Lab Works. At his day job, he creates fixture and display designs for mass merchandisers. Alan is able to tie these very different disciplines into a cohesive talent and express this in his art, and as the obvious mechanical arm of AlKa.
Kasia Gladys Adilman grew up in Poland and has been living in the U.S. since 1995. She has a master’s degree in Art Education from Silesia University in Poland. Kasia brings the sensitivity to AlKa, due to her expertise in various design settings. She is a floral designer, fine art sculptor and a free-hand sketch artist. Kasia can easily express your idea in any visual format, a successful complement to Alan’s mechanical side.
Alka was created out of the need for a release of design talent and personal expressions. Alan and Kasia started AlKa Creative a few years ago as a creative outlet, initially doing one-of-a-kind art for friends and family. As they have meshed their various experiences and art aesthetics to form one cohesive team, they can offer clients a unique perspective and talent to create a piece that no one else has. Fusion of both styles brings uniqueness to each handmade piece of art.
