My name is Maryna Mire.

I was born in 1982 in Kyiv, Ukraine.

In 2000 I graduated from T. Shevchenko State Art School (major – fine arts); during years of studying at Art School I was also engaged in creating sculpture art and ceramics (major – Fine Art, Craft Design & Folk Art).
Since 2001 I studied in the National Technical University of Ukraine “Kyiv Polytechnic Institute” – Institute of Publishing & Printing (Department of Book Graphics).
Since 2010 I work as a Freelance Artist.
Today I live in La Varenne-Saint-Hilaire, France.

For me art is like a prayer. Being born deep in your heart it goes out of the soul and likewise the prayer it helps you to reach God even closer, it helps you to hear the sounds of the Universe, to feel its magical breath with all of your heart.
