About Marina Nelson

In the end, or in the beginning, it's all about love.
I explore painting as a connection to our human vulnerability, of which love is its ultimate manifestation. My art channels healing energy of love, beauty, kindness, compassion and joy fostering a connection to the soul and, ultimately, the creator. This is my full-time work and love - I'm grateful for this wonderful opportunity to share my art with the world. Thank you.
