About the Artist

Marina's work explores issues of time, life and memory. Through painting she channels life experiences to create works of art.

Infused in time and space they act as a reminder of what has happened in the past. These moments become pathways for understanding the connections we share as humans with each other and with the natural world that surrounds us.
