Magdalena van Staden spent more than 17 years in the corporate world, but just never seemed fulfilled. She realised that the artistic and creative side to her life was lacking and decided to take the plunge into the world of professional photography. After completing numerous photographic courses she turned her passion for photography into a professional career. With her family as motivation and inspiration, photography has taught her to look at the world with a sense of wonder and amazement. “I believe our talents are God given gifts and it is our responsibility to grow and nurture it in return!” The Lonehill Art Gallery regularly stocks her elegant canvas prints and hopes to continue representing this talented artist as she develops her photographic style.
