“Discovering Marina’s flyer in our local Christian bookshop was a real answer to prayer for me. I had only been painting for a year, with no previous experience whatsoever and desperately needed some good tuition.”

“As well as being an inspired artist herself, Marina is a gifted teacher and communicator. Lots of ideas and techniques just flow out of her, while she also encourages people and draws out their own creativity.”

“I love my painting and it has been most therapeutic through a long time of illness-but –if it hadn’t been for Marina, I wouldn’t be painting today!”

Revd. Nona Harrison

 

“Marina’s classes are a delight in whatever medium she chooses to demonstrate. She is passionate about her work and instils enthusiasm to her groups—–a great day out, leaving you wanting to do more.”

“Saturday workshops at St John’s Church Hall, Thank you so much for the best workshop I have been on (I have been on loads) I thoroughly enjoyed all of it—–you are an excellent and inspirational tutor Marina. Lunch was great too—–Many thanks again. Fabulous.”

Lynn Cooper


“Dear Marina, Just to say how much we enjoyed our day on Saturday, it was very inspiring especially for me as I hardly ever use paints (other than silk painting!) We really appreciated all the trouble you went to. The lunch was fantastic. Thank you so much.”

“Just recently we as a class had the pleasure of a visit, talk and demo by Marina with her acrylic paints. We all enjoyed this visit very much. We found it fun and informative. Marina’s style of painting makes a picture evolve and grow; it seems to have a life of it’s own and becomes something alive and interesting.”

“Marina’s visit and demo inspired us to have a go with acrylics and inks which I found great fun. I think that I found her way of ‘pulling’ a picture with imagination and skill out of the paper, almost as if the painting was trying to join the art group all on it’s own!—-Very interesting—-Very exciting—-Thanks Marina for a lovely afternoon’s art session at Wendy’s Art Group at Wisdom House.”

“Marina asked me if I would like to do a workshop and one thing I had never done was papier mache, so I had a go, it was wonderful. I made two clown masks and my own puppet (clown).It was great fun, definitely recommend it to everyone to have a go. I’d never had the chance to do this before, but for me it was great. Marina has such a wonderful gift in her paintings and workshops and through her guidance and love, I was able to paint and discover my own spiritual walk. It did help so much and bring healing for me and through this I am able to help others and encourage them so they too can be free and be healed. I am able to use this also in my own beauty business.”
