Marina creates comic illustrations for advertising, editorial and publishing.
With clean fresh line drawing and use of textures and patterns, she captures the sweet and humorous side of animals, people and inanimate objects in every illustration. As a painter, Marina also portrays the animal world in a realistic style using portraiture to convey the warmth and personality of our animal companions. While working from home in New York city’s East Village she enjoys babysitting for dogs. The characters she meets inspire her work.
Her work has appeared in various publications in Italy and the U.S., most recently in Harvard magazine. In 2018 she illustrated a children’s picture book “A Tail of Two Kitties” written in verse by author Richard Cooper and currently available online for purchase.
Marina is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and you can also see her work at the Directory of Illustration website at http//www.directoryofillustration.com
