Marinella was introduced to painting and drawing at an early age. She then contracted meningitis which left her with multiple physical and learning disabilities. However, she continued with her art. In recent years, the physical strain of working in her preferred mediums and methods and the physicality of her technique, has exacerbated her physical disabilities to the extent that she is currently unable to continue to work. Her family and supporters hope that her works can be seen by and available to a wider audience.
Marinella’s work has been categorised as informal abstract. She worked primarily in oils or acrylic applied by hand and fingers. Her technique involved movement as expressive as the work created.
Examples of her work are exhibited online with “Outside In” at
