HI! I’m Marina Billinghurst.
Artist. Fashion Designer. West Coast Roots, East Coast Experience. Creative Director. Teacher.
I’m also a wife, sister, daughter and animal lover. Whoever said we had to pick just one thing to be?! I’m happiest hustlin’, and have experience as a designer and creative director in the fashion industry for over fifteen years with such awesome brands as Joe Boxer, Ben Sherman, HBC, Joe Fresh, and Karma Athletics, among others to back that up. I’ve also got the experience as an entrepreneurial artist, with the privilege of showing at The One of a Kind Show and Artist’s Project Toronto, along with my own clothing line.
My happiest days are spent making art, sharing it with you—and showing you how to do it! I love teaching workshops, sharing my experiences to anyone who’ll listen, because maybe, just maybe, it’ll help the next person go for their passion and exceed their wildest dreams!
If you need me, you can find me in my studio listening to unplugged acoustic anything, painting my watercolour world. And when I’m not? I’ll be on the beach with my husband, or on the couch with my furbabies Chino and Stormi, a laptop on my lap, and earl grey in my mug—extra honey.
