FEATURED SELLER: Magnesina - Agnieszka

Agnieszka Magnesina is the person behind fine art photography shop called Magnesina. 

Tell us bit about yourself
My name is Agnieszka, I was born in Poznan, Poland in 1987 and I still live here with my whole family. I study psychology and sexology at Adam Mickiewicz University, it’s my last year (fortunately!). I work in a small training business and lead creativity and art-therapy workshops, especially for children. I love dogs! I support the Polish Foundation For Homeless Animals. What do I do apart from creating...? I think that “life is about creating yourself” so I am creating all the time, I am creating myself.

Place that you live in.

Poland surprises me everyday, I like the mixture of cultural, historical and political spheres, every minute is interesting here. I adore the variety of landscape, nature goods, weather and temperate climate. Every little part of living here can be inspiring.

What first made you want to become an artist?

I don’t know. I do not consider myself as an artist. I just do what I love, whatever makes me happy. If somebody calls me “an artist”, I simply answer that I am “a passionist” :)

Describe your creative process.

I take my camera and then my creativity appears. I observe life and catch beautiful short moments in photographs. I call this activity “cropping the world”.

Advice to artists on Etsy

Create yourselves!

What your day looks like?

I do not use any day-scheme or week-scheme, I strive to do what I have to do, and then I can focus on my passions (not only photography of course!).

How do you promote?

I list new items, provide promotions in my shop (for example “BOGO sale”), I create treasuries, and participate in Etsy Teams.

In 10 years, where would you like to be?

I would like to spend 3 months of the year travelling the world with my camera and the other 9 months in a little private apartment on the coast of Italy. Oh sweet dreams… Now come to reality! I want to help people as psychologist and sexologist, be a good wife and mother, have my own home and travel with my camera at least a week in the year! :)

What inspires you?

Almost everything. Mostly nature, people and human emotions, architecture, weather, simple little things around me…
