Marina Apartsin was born in Russia and lives in Edmonton, Canada.
Her passion to art established the years of classical Russian training that she received at the St. Petersburg Art School. In that time her main painting subject became landscape. French and Russian impressionism greatly influenced her interpretation of nature. In 2000 she immigrated to Canada with her family.
The love to nature she expressed by spontaneous brush-strokes and rich bold colors. Marina paintings are also filled with the contrasts classical realism and abstract shapes. Her main goal as an artist is to create an emotional interaction between the viewer and the painted images.
Marina is taking different workshops to further explore the oil painting technique in different Art Studios and actively participating in shows throughout the province. She is selling her work privately and publicly including a select number of commissioned paintings.
