About Dina

“Women are looking for alternate ways to express themselves and satisfy their creative needs but often don’t know where to begin.”

I AM ALWAYS THE ARTIST, Dina

The desktop art of photo surrealism

The lovely thing about the digital age is art does not need to happen in a studio, with messy paints, scraps, room to stand back and natural light. Art can happen on the desktop, for the geeks, night owls and in single room living.   Marcela Bolivar Marcela... read more
