Hey there and welcome to my e-portfolio website! As you have probably figured, my name is Marina and I’m a design student at Capilano University. Most of my posts are about designers and illustrators that I admire. I have a great passion for modern and conceptual art and I hope to one day create great pieces like the ones you see on here.
I’ve been a student at CapU for almost a full year now, and it has been an awesome experience. Before last year, however, I had a pretty long journey. I was born and raised in a far-away land called R u s s i a. Here’s a couple key words to sum up my childhood: cold, and dark (it wasn’t that bad, I just like to exaggerate). When I was 13, my parents decided that it was time to move me and my brother someplace nicer and the best option was Montenegro. And oh, what a beautiful country!!! The mountains, the sea, the warmth of the sun! We did not speak a word of Montenegrin when we got there, and I’ve had to go to three different schools over the two and a half years. Pretty rough for an awkward teenager, BUT that was when my creativity really shone through. Then my family and I moved to Vancouver. Here I’ve had the chance to express myself creatively (almost) as much as I want too which has been lovely. I started studying design right after high school. So that’s me, nice to meet you. Hope you enjoy my geeky posts! 🙂
