Malgorzata Detner

Malgorzata Detner is a Poland based illustrator, born in 1989. She currently lives with her family, a cocker spaniel, snails, and two lovely rats in Warsaw. Her love of drawing appeared at a young age, influenced by her mother’s paintings but grew seriously when she decided to follow art in middle school. Although Malgorzata initially  followed a career in costume design with an interest in Victorian dresses, her daughter’s birth made her return to traditional painting and digital illustration. Influenced by old animation; Mysterious, fantastic worlds, animals, and creatures in vibrant colours are what she likes drawing the most. She draws digitally but she also likes to incorporate hand-painted textures in her work. Malgorzata loves creating illustrations that remind her of childhood memories. In her free time, she makes needle felted toys and enjoys watching her favourite movies including Studio Ghibli’s Totoro.
