My name is Agnieszka Mrzygłód. Born in Cracow in 1990, I occupy myself with painting, handcraft and restoration of old furniture, though I'm a biotechnologist by profession. While painting, I'm most keen on showing my passion for horses. I'm still discovering how much you can capture with your brush and share with others. Since I started taking care of the log cabin, which was built by my great grandfather in 1931, I have been fascinated with the country life. Enchanted and inspired by the atmosphere of the Polish countryside and wooden objects, I love creating the new, and restoring the old.
