Magdalena was born in Adamov. Having completed her grammar-school studies, she went on to study typography at the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design in Prague, where she now lives. In addition to typography and design, she has become very fond of watercolour illustration; although at first she used this merely as a rest from her computer-based work, it has gradually come to be her leading activity. Her main sources of inspiration are her dreams, the natural world and travel. You can find her pictures on greetings cards and in notebooks as well as in book publications.
