Marisa Canino - Painting

Marisa Canino is a primarily self-taught artist. After 20+ years and three kids, she returned to art-making during the COVID-19 pandemic. Primarily focusing on portraits of people and animals, she uses bold, non-realistic color to convey the unique mood and narrative of her subject. She will often use mixed media, repeating patterns, and heavy texture to add to that narrative. Her hope is to spark curiosity, connection, and wonder through nontraditional representations of familiar subjects. Marisa has enjoyed a career in nonprofit fund raising and management in Baltimore City, and is currently the Executive Director of the Creative City Public Charter School Foundation. She is a regular exhibiting artist at Hamilton Gallery (Baltimore, MD), Bohemian House Art & Soul (Ellicott City, MD), and Baltimore Art Gallery in Hampden (Baltimore, MD). She is also  available for portrait and other commissions. Marisa has considered the Baltimore area home for 25 years and lives with her husband and their three children (ages 12, 10, and 7) ... and two dogs, one cat, one hamster, one snake, and three fish!
