Biography

 


 

 

 

 

Francesca Siano was born on January 19, 1983 in White Plains, New York and grew up in Woodbury, Connecticut.


In 2005, Siano graduated from the University of Connecticut, where she received her BFA in Communication Design with a focus on Fine Art Photography. She also studied for a Summer at Parsons School of Design in NYC, and continues to take various workshops and classes keeping her constantly active and engaged as an artist.


Through Photography and Painting, Siano aims to tell a narrative that captures very personel and intimate moments. Although sometimes working thru abstraction she generally favors working in a representational manner.


Earlier on, Siano had avoided using herself as the subject matter for her art, but then circumstantially it became a very viable option. The vulnerability in being one's own muse helped her realize her reality which in turn shaped and validated her work.


Siano's artwork is shown in group shows through out the tri-state area and resides in various private collections around the U.S. 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 both Connecticut and New York City.
