BIOGRAPHY

get to know me better

Magdalena Nałęcz

I was born on 24 September 1970 in Rzeszów, Southern Poland. In 1990 I graduated from the State High School of Arts in Rzeszów. In the years 1990-1995 I continued my studies at the department of painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow. In 1995 I received my degree summa cum laude in painting under the supervision of Professor Jan Szancenbach, and a degree in drawing under the supervision of Professor Sławomir Karpowicz. Since 1995 I have been a member of the Union of Polish Artists and Designers. Throughout my whole artistic career I have supported charitable organisations and foundations, such as: the Children Foundation “On Time with Help” (“Zdążyć z Pomocą”); the Foundation for the Myeloma Treating Centre (Centrum Leczenia Szpiczaka), and the Art Transfer Foundation.
