Marina Zitting is a visual artist from Helsinki.
She utilises an array of techniques including oil and watercolours for her paintings, or charcoal and pastels for her drawings. In addition to creating her own art, Marina actively teaches art to members of the community.
Marina has created “After the storm”, a striking oil painting inspired by her collaboration with Professor Jari Yli-Kauhaluoma and Dr Paula Kiuru from the Medicinal Chemistry lab at the University of Helsinki’s Faculty of Pharmacy. Aside from creating this piece, Marina notes that Art Meets Science has been an interesting project to be involved in as it has allowed her to hear the views of the other participating members.
