Magdalena Borkowska was born in Warsaw, Poland. Currently living in Stockholm, Sweden.
During the years, as she lived in Stockholm, she studied hypnosis, psychosynthesis, healing, meditation, multidimension psychology and even remote viewing and clairvoyance to understand the human mind and to finally work as a therapist. In this period art was more as a hobby but the memory of the painting in the gallery window was still alive. 1997 she went back to Warsaw to study at Art Academy and 1998 she studied under the supervision of an adjunct professor Wlodzimierz Szymanski at the Academy.
I paint because it is an inner compulsion, a constant need and never-ending adventure of exploring the self and the creativity. This is what drives me. I paint because through painting I can literary turn the inside out and expose myself.
I usually paint on canvas. I use mostly oil paint and brushes, but I also experiment with mixed media and various tools to achieve the desired result. Some of my paintings requires very, thorough, time consuming and detailed work and some of them are painted using action painting technique. I aim to create different series to tell new stories.
