Marina Gersman was born in 1969. She graduated from Moldova's Academy of Music as a pianist.
Her family came to America in 1995, where she graduated the Fashion Institute of Technology of New York as a fashion designer.
Marina works in the unique medium of fabric collage. She uses different textures, thicknesses and qualities of fabrics to achieve a three-dimensional quality in her works, and her use of various colors, tones and shades grant them a painterly appearance. Marina’s collection consists of a variety of still lives and landscapes, and she is currently creating a series depicting city landscapes from around the world.
