Imagine seeing an abstract emotion or thought unleashed through colour and imagery. Santina communicates the unspoken and unwritten word in her paintings, capturing an emotional instance onto tangible canvas. The ability for one painting to convey a universal and monumental statement instantaneously, is Santina's triumph.
Santina has been painting and selling her works privately for several years now. Her works transition from Renaissance Realism to Abstract occurred in the mid 1980's while she was living and working in Italy.
Santina continues to live and paint in Toronto. Click here to see Santina's CV.
