Marina Valerievna Kozlova

Born in 1966 in the town of Troutsk in Chelyabinsk region, now she lives in the village of Mstiora in Vladimir region.

Marina graduated from the Mstiora Art School in 1985, where her teacher was Vera Georgievna Starkova. In her artwork Kozlova uses tempera art technique. She is interested in painting on the themes of folk fairy-tales. She gives preference to pastel tones.

The painter has created many author works: "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" (1986), "Little Shepherd" (1986), "The Frog Princess" (1987), "Ermak's Swans" (1987), "The Golden Cockerel" (1987), "How Beyond the River..." (1988), "The Sleeping Princess" (1988), "The Tale of the Died Princess" (1989), "Winter" (1989), "At the Well" (1989), "Oversea Visitor" (1989), "The Scarlet Flower" (1989), "The Tale of Tsar Saltan" (1993), "Sadko" (1993), "Three Trips of Ilya Murometz" (1995), "The Frog Princess" (1995), "The Little Humpbacked Horse" (1996), "Ruslan and Chernomor" (1996), "Ruslan and Ludmila" (1997), "The Snowmaiden" (1997), "The Hen Ryaba" (1997), "The Tale of the Died Princess" (1998), "Emelya" (1998), "Morozko" (1999), "Ilya Murometz" (1999), "Levko and Ganna" (1999).

The master considers painting in ancient traditions of Mstiora to be the most important aspect of her pieces, Marina is sure that work on a miniature can be never regarded as finished. Her art works differ from others by very detailed execution of all compositions' elements and by preservation of traditional painting (N.P. Klykov). Marina believes she is always in search of her personal art techniques. The artist hopes her pieces will be remembered by precision of their drawings and execution.

In her free time Marina likes to sew, to knit, and to embroider.

She wishes her admirers to continue to follow her creative work and to acquire her pieces.
