My name is Marina Garrison and I am the author of this blog. I am an artist working in all kinds of media, from pastels to oils to Illustrator. My work exhibits my fascination with light and how it can be portrayed using different mediums. My subject matter includes portraits, landscapes and still life. And I love to take photos with my Sony A6000. 

In between art escapades, I get to take care of my three wonderful children and equally wonderful husband. 

I also enjoy analog technology. This includes film cameras, typewriters and fountain pens.
