Magda was born in Poland. From 1980 to 2010 she collected national dolls and specialized in dolls, whilst studying anthropology at University. Her collection of national dolls had a series of exhibitions in several polish museums between 1996 and 2012.
As a child, Magda had Aerobic Fleur and Great Shape Barbie but always wanted to have more, however, the Communist regime at the time made this impossible. It was in 1997 that Magda finally started collecting fashion dolls. Since childhood, she loved to sew fashions for dolls and taking photos of them. This love carried over into adulthood!
Magda has had several exhibitions of her fashion dolls collection and dolls photos. She never travels without a doll and loves to take photos of them wherever she goes and has travelled to over 40 countries. Her photography can be seen on her
