With the sound of crashing sea waves and the hot feeling of sand under bare feet, my story starts in Famagusta, Cyprus. My family’s childhood home built along the scenic coastline, I spent most of my days by the beach. It is here that I came to know the limitless freedom of the Ocean. Surrounded by the vivid landscapes of Cyprus, art came naturally to me.
Her heart’s desire was to study art, although she would pursue a successful career in hotel management and marketing before finally achieving her life-long dream. She has studied at the prestigious schools of Central St-Martins and the University of Massachusetts Amherst (UMASS).

The ocean and its waters, full of life and possibility, are a part of my most joyful memories. They are from which I draw inspiration from in my work and why my pieces have the power to evoke strong feelings of nostalgia and freedom.

At the age of 14, Marina lost her home in the trauma of war. The ocean and its waters, full of life and possibility, are a part of her most joyful memories. They are from which she draws inspiration from in her work and why her pieces have the power to evoke strong feelings of nostalgia and freedom. A world traveller, I have called many places home. The man-made beaches of Dubai, the crowded markets of Ethiopia, and now, the grey skies of London, U.K., each brings their own colour palette to my current work. Created with robust energy, my paintings have playful textures and a distinct style. They bring to surface lost memories of being near water, the sound of rumbling waves, the feeling of a warm breeze across skin. A metaphor of the transient human experience, my artwork suggests we flow through the journey through life, ever-changing and free.
