Marina Amaral
Artist | Professional | Digital Art
One day I decided to combine my fascination with history and skill using Photoshop; the combination was magical. I started to restore and put color into photo's that were originally black and white, allowing people to see history from a new and colorful perspective. Each photo is made to be realistic by recognizing the value behind each image, respecting and preserving their stories, paying attention to the finer details and maintaining the original essence in each one. Every completed work has gone through long and in depth research, and is supported by the opinions of experts in each particular area if necessary, to faithfully reproduce the original colors and atmosphere. My work ranges from simple portraits to complex and detailed images, taken from various historical periods covering a wide range of topics.

If you're intereted in my work, take a look at my portfolio and send me an email:
