Born into a family of French artists, Marina Dieul began visiting European museums at a young age. It was during these visits that she absorbed the talent of the great masters.
She quite naturally followed her artistic vocation and completed her studies in Fine Arts in France. She received her diploma with distinction, the jury recognizing in particular the quality of and commitment to her work.
Her focus is primarily Still Life, Tompe I'Oeil and Portraiture. Her mastery of painting techniques allows her to go beyond mere likeness to express the interiority of her model.
The portraits of Marina Dieul are distinguished by their sensitivity, grace and harmony. The artist has lived and worked for some years now in Montreal.
