Maja Konarska

Stylist

Maja Konarska was born in Szczecin in 1973. She comes from an intelligentsia family. When she was a little girl, she already showed great interest in music and fine arts. It would not be anything extraordinary (practically every little girl catches the art bug), but she graduated from a music school in piano performance, as well as from Secondary School of Fine Arts in Szczecin (art of exhibitions). Despite graduation from a Secondary School of Fine Arts, she got involved more in music, especially performing and composing songs. With her band called Moonlight she recorded 11 albums, where she co-composed music at first and later also wrote lyrics. Her musical adventure finished in 2007 (though she occasionally records with befriended bands) and since then she has developed her photographic as well as hair and make-up styling skills. She has photographed mainly beginner models (so-called first portfolio) and worked as a wedding photographer. She started cooperation with U-bik Team in early 2011 as a hair and make-up stylist and photographer.
