Currently attending Simon Fraser University, Marina strives to earn another bachelors degree in animation from Emily Carr and then a corporate law degree. After all her education is finished, she hopes to be able to work in the video game industry. 

Marina started seriously painting four years ago at the age of 21. She began painting at a young age when she would watch her grandmother paint. A member of the Decorative Painters Society, Marina's grandmother introduced her to different kinds of techniques and styles.

Marina works mostly with watercolour but she is apt in acrylics, inks and pastels. She enjoys painting people and animals of all sorts. She hopes to branch out to oils as soon as she can.
