The former director of Los Angeles's Craft and Folk Art Museum (CAFAM), Maryna continues her mission of championing a human centric approach to ART + DESIGN as an independent consultant.  With a warm aesthetic that blends Fine/Folk/Craft, Maryna works with collectors and interior designers to create spaces that look and feel good. Contributing cultural and historic research to design projects, Maryna helps create a 'sense of place' with panache and patina.

Known for her knack for spotting fresh talent, her knowledge of global art, and her sharp ability to edit until only the best remains, Maryna sees every project as an opportunity to tell a story.   Whether curating an art collection or developing an art direction, Maryna helps clients filter out the noise and find focus in a sea of choices.  

As the founder of The Cosmopolite Project, a boutique creative strategy firm that leverages cultural knowledge to chart new projects, Maryna utilizes her background in both Global Affairs and arts leadership to unleash the vast potential at the center of art + commerce.  

With a colorful career that includes work in NYC, Kyiv, London, Dubai and Los Angeles, Maryna’s relationships with global artists, artisans and creative thinkers play an integral role in shaping each project.  A love of art and objects with an explicit narrative, a keen interest cultural history, and a deep appreciation for the handmade, guide her sophisticated layering of aesthetic elements.
