Broken Bottle Series

Visual Art – Calgary

Hi, I'm Marina, AKA Broken Bottle Series! I'm a self-taught watercolour artist, splitting my time time between Canmore and Calgary. I've always been creative, but really dove into watercolours during the pandemic. I was living in a prewar house that was strangely stuccoed with pieces of broken glass bottles, which inspired the house's name, The Broken Bottle. Long pandemic days were spent painting in the house, starting with my earliest "series" work - thus, Broken Bottle Series was born. When I'm not painting, I work as a hiking guide in the Canadian Rockies, which have been a huge source of inspiration for me long before moving west from Saskatchewan. The awe I feel in the mountains pushes me to create images that give others that same feeling.
