Martino, Elena

Animals, nature, emotions, and connection; these are the things that drive my passion to create art. My work is about the emotional life of animals, the interconnection of all beings, and the unseen magic that surrounds us all. As a traditional and representational artist, my goal is to create a high degree of realism, although quite often some of the shapes will take on an abstract nature. My most basic desire is to capture on canvas the wonder and awe of God’s creation within the scene’s emotional impact. I try to capture every single moment in my paintings and putt a smile on someone else’s face. Hopefully the viewer is moved to appreciate the beauty of the natural world around them and at the same time make them feel like they were there.
