Danuta Makarska graduated from the Artur Grottger’s Secondary School of Fine Arts in Supraśl. She has been associated with Agnella from the beginning of the company’s activity, i.e. from 1975, creating the first foundations for the company’s design.
At the start of her career Danuta made patterns on paper manually, long before designs were created on a computer and the work had to be done manually from start to finish.
The collages were painted, drawn or glued. The designs were then drawn and the colors were applied to the sheet where each grid corresponded to a single thread on the loom.
Despite the fact that it was a time-consuming and tedious task (some complicated patterns in the size of 300x400cm could take up to six months to draw), she produced beautiful classic patterns and many of them are still in production today and are best sellers.
Designing carpets has always been a great challenge for her, allowing for self-realization, especially when the inspiration is nature and art. The transfer of the observed environment to a project, combined with the product’s utility values, gives her the greatest satisfaction, especially when it gains the recognition and satisfaction of Agnella’s customers.
Outside of work, Danuta likes visiting interesting places, being in the bosom of nature and painting with oils in front of the easel.
