“I’m the proud owner of Marina Kanavaki’s 2017 calendar: “Twelve Months: A Journey Entranced.” It’s lovely, and I’m delighted.
I bought the Wall Calendar (the calendar is also available as a digest-sized planner). The Wall Calendar is tabloid-sized, 11” wide by 17” high, and stands out beautifully on any wall.
Each month features a painting that takes up most of the page: approximately 11” by 15”. The effect is like having a lovely painting on your wall, with a tidy little calendar at the bottom.
Every month you flip the page to reveal a new painting— it’s like having your own rotating art gallery.
The paintings are dynamic, and the colors are absolutely gorgeous. Each month uses the associated birthstone (and color) as its theme, and also incorporates the month number (April being “4,” for example). The moon is featured in many of the paintings, creating a dramatic focal point.
The paintings themselves are so bold and colorful, they radiate energy into the room, and create a mood. I can picture visitors gravitating to the calendar, just as one is drawn to a painting in someone’s home. I doubt there are many calendars that could spark a conversation about art— but this one definitely could!
If you’re a Marina Kanavaki fan (like me), this calendar will allow you to bring some of her vibrancy, passion, sense of fun, and joie de vivre into your home. Good art and a good influence— you can’t beat that combination.
Most calendars get discarded at the end of the year. Not this one. I plan to turn mine into a Marina Kanavaki Art Gallery. Maybe I’ll charge admission, and become rich… : )
My thanks to Marina for a beautiful calendar. It’s certainly my pleasure to write this testimonial.”

“My new favorite bag – artwork made by Marina
For the last month I have enjoyed Marina Kanavakis beautiful art, so sensitive and yet strong, I always look forward to her posts, and now I finally got one of her great pieces – the bag in the picture below.
I LOVE it – it is so cool and it will for sure become a steady part of my spring and summer wardrobe! In weekends I will wear it with jeans and a off-white t-shirt – At parties I will wear it with a nude color or black evening dress in silk – and in my consultant business I will wear it with a suit and a scarf that fits the colors. AND already now I know that this bag will be special to me – no matter of witch situation I wear it –so THANK you Marina for this and for our virtual friendship.

Happy Friday! Camilla”
