In 1992, enchanted by the landscape, space and wild life of Australia, I left my homeland - Poland and made my home in Canberra. A master's degree in architecture (Cracow Technical University, Poland) gave me a comprehensive understanding of design, which enabled me to launch Malgorzata Design Studio.
Initially designing and handcrafting my unique styled jewellery, I followed on with the development of many other lines of handcrafted artwork: mirrors, pictures, hand painted glass, belts and clocks.
I draw on my Polish heritage along with my favorite design style - Art Nouveau.
The rock formations of Australian coastal areas, as well as Australian fauna and flora have also provided inspiration for my designs.
Over time I have developed my own distinctive style, which is easily recognized by Australian and international customers.
1994 was the first year that my works were exhibited with The Australian Craft Show.
For the following 11 years I had continued holding annual displays at this event in Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
