"You don't take a photograph, you make it." —Ansel Adams
Marika likes em dashes, cats, dark chocolate, pewter plates, Paris in May, New York at Christmas, flea markets, craft bourbon, slivers of sunlight, peeling paint, roasted chestnuts, chipped enamelware, the smell of the darkroom, undisturbed snow, salvaged wood, rain on the roof, silence, and bedtime stories.
She's a storyteller.
Marika sees the world through the lens. Painting with light, she captures the moments in between—telling a story through images. With a B.F.A in Photographic Arts, her work has appeared in shows and private collections around the globe. Marika works out of her studio and on location—has camera, will travel.
She can add pictures to your story.
When she's not chasing the light, Marika can be found in the kitchen, elbow-deep in flour—or looking wistfully out the window with a cat in her lap.
She likes to eat.
