When I first saw Marianna's collection of pictures on her Flickr stream, I had to pick my jaw from the floor.

I've seen many photographers who are doing selfie. All of them are pretty but Marianna's work is truly different and eye catching! I love how she uses the blur effect on her pics, the way she incorporates textures into her work (scratchy but so pretty and artsy), how she interprets her idea, and the whimsy feeling her pictures convey. I took a look at some of her previous work and I love to see how she continues to evolve.

I had the opportunity to get to know her a little better through an interview that I did for Divas and Dreams Mini Magazine (make sure you subscribe! Lots of prettiness and lovely inspiration there!).

I feel that her pictures are honest. She said that she is a chocoholic and a nutella lover and she is not shy to admit that. LOL
Nutella ...

I love her hair and freckles...I really think it goes along very well with her care free spirit.
Week 8|52
Like everyday

She shared with me that doing a self-portrait is an intimate moment with yourself, a unique opportunity to discover you and meet you.

Week 39/52

She said that photography for her is like yoga. It is like breathing, it is life. When I asked her how would she define her style, she simply said, "I don´t like to define myself because that limits me. Years of work have led me to find the style that I have at the moment but this may change over the years as I am an adventurer and I love to try different things." (Oh I just love her care free spirit!). I love how her creative flair transforms simple ideas into arts.
