Dr. Monica Gianina Marcu - Nature and Fine Art Photography

Seattle, WA, USA


Nature is my inspiration and relief,
green - my favourite colour,
mountains are my roots and my heroes...
I shall return with the rivers and butterflies, in the leaves and clouds, forever.

Monica Marcu in the media:


Nobody succeeds alone. Nobody succeeds without love. I am grateful for being loved and supported by a wonderful man, my husband Mihai. Over and over, have I turned to him and benefited of his patience, excellent taste and infinite love of Nature. And, of course, technical skills ... Thank you !

I was most lucky to have a kind and loving family. My deepest gratitude goes to my mother, who worshipped beauty and harmony in any form. My profound love travels far away, to meet my late father. I miss you very much... Your passion for the woods and their mystery rests always within me.

I am grateful to my friends for surrounding me with their warmth, advice and support. One of them, Paul Hulsebosch, a "gentle giant" from Holland, kindly designed this web site. Thank you all!
