Living in Northern Ontario, Marianka is a hard-working grade 10 student in High School.  In the last year, she has started her own business in photography for a hobby.  Surrounded with animals especially Tex, Marianka is the happiest girl.  Now self-taught the piano and plays it when the time permits, she is adding more hobbies to her list!



1. How did you come up with the idea for this drawing that is included inside the calendar. 

I really love Disney, so I think that it would be a good idea to put one of my passions in my drawing.  Also, Disney shows that everything is possible, and if you can dream it, you can also do it.  So that’s why I decided to do something with Disney on my drawing. 

2. Why do you like drawing/painting or taking pictures?

I like drawing/painting because I can express myself in the different artwork that I do.

3. How did you feel when you heard your artwork was selected for the TGIF Calendar?

I was happy and it encourages me to continue do drawing for the next years.

4. What are your hobbies and interests?

My hobbies and interests are playing with my dog, teaching him new tricks, photography, playing outside and also playing piano. 

5. What do you want to be when you grow up?

When I grow up, I would like to be a photographer and/or a pet groomer.
