Carina Francioso was born in Ontario, Canada

 

"I want my paintings to convey the beauty and power of the seas and oceans in all their moments and forms. These different states of water really depict our culture and reflect our daily lives and emotions with all their ebbs and flows. At times our lives are serene, fluid and calm, and other times they are stormy, chaotic and filled with confusion. I strive to highlight and express the vastness of water through my large scale canvases or wood panels as they heighten the memory of the experience and bring it to life. My dream as an artist is to evoke emotion and leave it up to the viewer to have their own personal experience with each piece I create. I have learned that water is life and without it, we wouldn't be here today. Water connects us to nature and connects all of us around the world. I focus on the beauty of water because what we focus on is where our energy flows. By depicting the beauty and magnificence of water I hope to bring about a deeper conversation regarding water conservation and protection."  - Carina Francioso
