About Mateja Marinko
There are no upcoming events
I have big family with four wonderful children and my passion for making portraits came from them. I love to capture the time, the smile, the glow in their eyes and put this on the canvas or paper.
I am an economist by profession and have been working in finance for 15 years, but I have been missing the emotions, the passion, the beauty of the people and I have decided to follow my heart and embrace the talent I have.
I paint in all kind of techniques: oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, pencil drawing, charcoal sketches, soft pastels, oil pastels, blue pen...
I would like people to stop at my portraits and think about the person on the canvas, think who they are, what is their story... to create their own story....
