Marianna has been drawing for as long as she can remember. Her earliest introduction to stories have played an influential role in the drawings she creates till this day. Picture books including Where the Wild Things Are, lyrics from folk songs as well as stories from her parent’s endless travels have led Marianna’s mind to wander into places where absolutely anything is possible. Marianna predominantly works with pencil and watercolour paints. Tiny fragments from her enormous collection of vintage books and travel brochures often weave their way in to her drawings, adding to the sense of escapism or journey to an imaginary world or fantastical situation. Through her drawings Marianna hopes to hint at a narrative without giving away the whole story. She hopes that imagination of people who view her artwork is temporarily sparked to escape in to another time or place.
