Marianna is a professional graphic designer for 30+ years and award winning, published photographer since 2009. She enjoys macro and conceptual work the most but in all seriousness she loves to challenge herself to capture and create something new every day.
Born in Poland she immigrated to Canada as a teen and graduated from Concordia University with a Magna Cum Laude honours in Fine Arts. She has lived in Montreal, Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal (again). In recent years, Marianna’s genuine passion for the natural environment, her eye for beauty in both man-made and natural, and her mastery of photography as art have created an alloy that speaks volumes about the harmony that can – and must - exist in our modern world between man and nature.
Her interest in macros, and mushrooms in particular, began as a child following her parents on mushroom forays in Eastern Europe. Collecting and eating wild mushrooms has been a tradition in her family for generations. It is not surprising that she is the photographer and graphic designer of the "2017 Miraculous Mushroom" calendar published by Amber Lotus Publishing: miraculous-mushroom-2017-calendar
She has participated in 2 group exhibitions with Lakeshore Camera Club in Kirkland Library in 2014 and DDO Gallery in 2015, and has had 2 solo exhibitions in 2016. Her Macro World exhibition was held in the Beaconsfield Library, and the second in Villa Beaurepaire, also in Beaconsfield.
Her collection of unique abstract macro images is now available through my Etsy store: www.etsy.com/shop/PhotographyOne.
