    I did not actually have a session with Marina but she was gracious enough to talk to me on the phone about various options I might have for creating the illustrations for a book I am working on. Anyone wanting a very qualified and talented instructor should contact her. I am only now beginning the conceptualization of my book and it will be awhile before I can visualize the kinds of illustrations I need. Thank you to for connecting me to Marina.

    I love that Marina can bring out creativity and skills for each individual student. She also encourages us to use alternative art materials that are environmental friendly. I love how Marina inspires us to do great arts.
