Marina's work explores issues of time, life and memory. Through painting she channels life experiences into works of art.

Her style and compositions show the natural forms of a real world in a semi abstract, expressionistic and/or conceptualistic way. Her work has been described as “a reflection and celebration of life in a symbolic manner.” She creates paintings with a vivid colour palette usually, many textures, robust energy and a playful style. Creating in strong tonal variations, she constantly challenges her own talent by trying to experiment with subject matters and techniques for new creative effects.

While she uses a variety of processes in each project, she mainly works in oil on canvas although she often likes to work with acrylics or mixed media. Each project often consists of multiple works, grouped around specific themes and meanings. During research and production, new areas of interest arise and lead to the next body of work. The subject matter of each body of work determines the materials and the forms of the work. Before she starts painting, she draws, reads and studies as much as she can about the specific project she is exploring. Marina does not merely develop artwork with her brushes - she paints from inside out. She creates artworks that are meant to speak for themselves.
