Marina Beard is a multi media artist with a BA joint honours degree from Camberwell College of Art.
As a practitioner she is interested in exploring the meeting point of the two worlds of Fine Art & Craft. She worked as a public artist prior to training as a Secondary School teacher. In her practice and teaching, she aims to encourage others to pursue their own creative journey engaging with the arts in order to find their own meaningful personal language. A bit of a magpie, her mercurial mind seeks to manipulate colour, form, texture and phrases to express herself in often disparate and intriguing ways, which she hopes result in deeply personal unique pieces.
