Russian professional artist of applied art Marina Alexandrova finds uniqueness in simplicity and beauty in ordinary seashells. Creating colorful and detailed landscapes, still lifes, and fantasy artworks she uses only natural color clams and mussels combining color and shape. All her art works are elegant, original, and exclusive, due to the fact that there are no identical shells in the nature. This direction of art is called Conchology. Working on seashell mosaic, Marina also uses the diversity of shellfish – as for many of them she has to go to distant lands. And traveling is not in vain: in the warmest seas she finds shellfish of the most vivid colors and whimsical shapes and textures. Marina Alexandrova started working with seashells approximately 10 years ago. Now Moscow based artist Marina Alexandrova is a member of Russian Union of Artists, and author of the book “Seashells and Coastal Decor”.
