Bio

My name is Marina Zotova

I am a self-taught Russian artist who is passionate about creativity and ready to paint day and night. 

Today I devote a lot of time to painting. I put a piece of myself into every canvas and every brushstroke. I ”feel” each of my artwork and “see” the future picture – only by picking up a blank canvas and looking at it.

My passion is love for nature. My landscapes convey not only sunny and positive emotions. Sometimes it is sadness during a cloudy day, and sometimes it is a threat before a thunderstorm. But I love nature as it is – different, in different colors and moods, and in different weather. In any of its performances – it is perfect.

My followers often write to me that looking at my landscape, they seemed to have visited my painting, in the place that I painted. And I understand them. I also just came from there .

Despite the fact that I became an artist not so long ago, I already have achievements that I can share:

 – To date, my works are represented by the top online artgalleries, as Artfinder, SaatciArt and others.

 – My works are sold all over the world, the main buyer is from Europe, USA, Canada and Australia. And of course from Russia.

 – Recently, one of my first artwork “Gold Autumn” won a “1 Prize” diploma in the international competition “Deli’s Mustache”. I am invited to a live competition in Spain in May 2022. The organizers of the competition pay part of the trip for the winners. This is a great compliment for me.

 – In May 2021, my paintings are participating in the auction at the «Prichal Boat Show” festival in St. Petersburg.
