Check out Magda George’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Magda George.

Magda, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
I am originally from Poland. I always knew I wanted to have a creative and imaginative job in my future. Since
early childhood I read fairytale and fantasy books and used my imagination as a outlet. Deep down in my heart
I knew I was an artist. My parents did not support my career choice. They wanted me to become a pharmacist.
I was a very good student and could have gone in that direction but I knew that was not part of my journey to
fulfill myself. I moved from my hometown to Lublin in Poland where I graduated with a degree in Landscape
Architecture. My first mentors while in college were Mr. Janecki and his son who helped me to pursue my dream
job….designing. I won a student fair competition in designing performance for kids. After graduation I decided
to move to the United States because I would have more opportunities to advance in my craft. I had confidence
in myself that I would be able to take care of myself and to accomplish my goals. I have realized I am happier and
uplifted when I am able to share my work. It is part of my identity. I have continued my journey. While living
in Biloxi, Mississippi I received another degree in Digital Design from Tulane University. Since then I have met
other mentors/teachers, Ron Warr from Animation and Cecelia Shabazz the Creative Director, who encouraged
me to never give up to be an artist. I was blessed with a great gift….imagination and creativity. I will continue to
use my skills and to learn more about the Digital World.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
My art is an explosion of an emotions and an intellect. Sometimes it is settled, an energetic or another time is wild. My inspiration is the nature and the people. At the nature I’m trying to notice the natural beauty, what usually are left unnoticed by distracted people. At the people I’m trying to capture emotions, feelings, distress. For my digital artworks – I’m using Adobe Cloud software and my Wacom tablet. This creative software works for me like a magic. I can use multiple brush strokes on the canvas without worrying that I can destroy my painting. I really love to use a bright colors, different types of texture to compose a unique piece of art. Currently I’m trying to illustrate e-books for kids and exploring different digital medium.

What do you know now that you wished you had learned earlier?
I wish to be brave and bold enough to understand that I don’t have to draw the same like everyone. For a long time I was ashamed that my paintings are different from my classmates, I was trying to imitate their style. You have to stay strong, believe in yourself and follow your gut to become an inspiring artist.

Do you have any events or exhibitions coming up? Where would one go to see more of your work? How can people support you and your artwork?
