My name is Marina Venediktova. I was born in 1974 in Kazan, Russia. My father is a professional artist-designer. It is difficult for me to trace the moment when painting first captured my attention, apparently from the first days of my life. I always studied with my father, and then graduated from an art school in the city of Kazan, later in 2007 I moved to live in St. Petersburg and practiced for many years in private workshops with artists of the Art Academy of St. Petersburg. As a second education, there was a graduation from the Academy of Astrology in St. Petersburg, and a great practice of consulting clients. More than six years have passed since then, and it was astrology that gave me that unique accent in my paintings, inspired me to a new stage of my work. Now I do not just look at the world, at people, I see them with my own eyes, I see the peculiarity of every person, every soul, even if it is an inanimate object. But the words are too mean to describe it, so I chose my language - the language of canvas and paints. I know that I am on the right track, I know this because I have an incredible amount of pleasure in the time spent drawing. I am talking to my inner Self, and this conversation can last for hours. My work is not a static picture, it is meditation, it is a flow of life, this is an experience that will open up to you in a new way every time. Perhaps you will solve this riddle, perhaps my plots will forever remain a mystery to you. But only one thing is important - it will be good for you to be alone with my paintings, which will decorate your home. Education:
