Celebrities’s oil and pencils portraits by Mariana Po

My name is Mariana Po, I live in Ukraine, Kiev.

I’m a self-taught amateur artist who started drawing 3,5 years ago. Unfortunately there was no opportunity to visit any art courses or get artistic education, since I’m on a maternity leave with my two little daughters and I already have 2 universities degrees. So that I decided to use my intuition and give drawing a try. Since then I’m a successful artist, who’s works originals and prints are kept at various private collections all over the world. I use different medias such as oil paints (both on canvas and paper — dry brush technics), colored and graphite pencils, pastels and pastel pencils.


I know that I have no chance to be featured, but hey, at least I gave it a try :D
