“Each painting Marina creates is, in fact, a view through a small window in her mind. The view we see is wonderful and is at the same time, a memory of a moment in her life which she has chosen to share with the viewer. Lately, these views show expansive landscapes and emotive scenes of the ocean in all moods. The paintings are so capably executed and meticulously devised, that they leave the viewer with a feeling of utter contentment and peace." Steve Bales (First Rand Group Art Curator - Decd.)
