Francesca Siano was born on January 19, 1983 in White Plains, New York and grew up in the Northwest Region of Connecticut in the scenic town of Woodbury, known as the “Antiques Capital of Connecticut."
Since a young age Siano has shown a tremendous interest in the creative arts. As an adolescent, Siano was the winner in her division for her poster honoring the Pops Concert put on by the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra. The juried show was sponsored by the Summer Symphony Committee. By the time high-school came around Siano had enrolled in Life Drawing Workshops offered by The University of Hartford Art School. It was those classes, along with her trip to The Prado Museum in Spain, her frequent trips to the Metropolitan Museum of Art and one particular high-school art teacher that helped persuade Siano to pursue Art at the University Level.
In 2003, Siano completed an Intensive Studies program at Parsons School of Design in NYC, and in 2005 Siano graduated from the University of Connecticut, receiving a BFA in Communication Design and Photography.
After graduation, Siano studied the Fundamentals of Makeup with Mess New York and attended The Artist’s Summit with The Powder Group. Her knowledge of beauty, design, color and photography led her to product development in the packaging industry. Siano worked in Brand Management, Marketing, and finally rounded out in Sales.
Siano left her corporate role in 2012 to pursue more direct and creative adventures. During this transitory time, Siano assisted a well known Artist in his Tribeca studio where she was able to get her hands used to stretching canvases, gessoing, studio set up and practice once again.
In 2013 Siano relocated back to Connecticut to have Studio 315 built, a studio space where she earnestly pursues her creative endeavors.
Siano’s work is a continuous study of human and psychological behavior, life’s candid and staged happenings and the way in which we evolve into our own levels of existence. Images are often fragmented narratives which are hidden, dreamy and surreal.
Siano's artwork hangs in various private collections around the U.S and is shown through out the Northeast in such venues as the Green Point Gallery in Brooklyn NY., Cambridge Art Association in Massachusetts, the Newport Art Museum, in Newport RI, Gunn Library's Stairwell Gallery and the Washington Art Association, in Washington CT,
In addition her photograph "Living Room 2" was published in CMYK’s Magazine Portfolio, which showcased the highest selections among thirty contributing institutions.
Siano currently resides in Connecticut where she maintains her practice at Studio 315 while working towards receiving her Masters in Art Therapy.
