An aspiring conceptual artist and photographer based in Sydney, Marina’s works consist prominently of naturalistic elements. Her interest in creative photography led to the development of many macro works, showcasing the simple beauty found in nature that typically eludes the naked eye. As an avid animal-lover, having worked full-time in the veterinary industry for over six years, various photographic animal portraits also make an appearance in her portfolio in the hope that they may be used to promote responsible pet ownership and ethical treatment of animals.
Marina currently uses a Canon EOS 60D, but has used various lower budget Olympus models in the the past. Current lenses used include Canon EF-S 18-200mm F/3.5-5.6 IS and Tamron SP AF 90mm F/2.8 (Macro 1:1).

Conceptual art (n.) – a contemporary form of artistic representation in which the concept(s) or idea(s) conveyed to the perceiver through the work, take precedence over traditional aesthetic and material concerns.
“In conceptual art, the idea or concept is the most important aspect of the work. When an artist uses a conceptual form of art, it means that all of the planning and decisions are made beforehand and the execution is a perfunctory affair. The idea becomes a machine that makes the art.” — Sol LeWitt
