My name is Marina Venediktova. I was born in 1974 in the Russian city of Kazan. My father is a professional artist and designer. It is difficult for me to track the moment in the past 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, and a large practice of consulting clients. Since then, more than six years have passed, 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 uniqueness of each person, each soul, even if it is an inanimate object. But words are too stingy to describe it, so I chose my own language-the language of canvas and paint. I know Im on the right track, I know that because Im enjoying the time I spend drawing. I talk to my inner Self, and this conversation can last for hours. My work is not a static picture, it is a meditation, it is a life stream, it is an experience that will open up to you in a new way every time. Perhaps you will solve this riddle, perhaps my stories will always remain a mystery to you. But only one thing is important – you will be happy alone with my paintings that will decorate your home.
