My digital art from the Waterwalk series is on the cover of The Scientist magazine for September 2010 and also illustrates the cover story inside, Touching RNA by Anna Marie Pyle.

My self-portrait that I submitted for the contributors' page . I can barely keep my eyes open in the glare of the Los Angeles sun.

Here’s what the magazine wrote for the biography blurb, based on an interview with me:

I think science is really important,” says Magda Wojtyra, who finds her niche as a graphic designer, digital artist, photographer, world traveler, and stuffed animal and jewelry creator. Wojtyra did the cover art for this month’s issue, from her “Waterwalk” series, which was created through the digital manipulation of an image of RNA. Magda also designs “art websites for scientists and other heroes,” through her company RNA Studio (www.rna.ca).

Madga learned design while at school for architecture at the University of Waterloo. “What I like about all the different design, including architecture, is the storytelling aspect,” she says. Some of her work will be exhibited during the Nuit Blanche show at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto, Ontario on October 2, 2010.
