Animals and plants were the source of a career for Marina Strijakova in her former Russia, but since arriving to Australia, she is transitioning her love of nature into art. Strijakova has developed her love of nature into her unique style of art through a combo of Millenia Chinese calligraphy brush strokes and western painting techniques. Using a variety of medium, including impasto, modelling paste, heavy gel and gesso is used to add a texture to the paintings. Ink, acrylic and oil paints add the colours and shades, multi-layered to add a feeling of depth. Strijakova artwork invites the beauty and complexity of nature into any space they are featured in.
