Anna Zinato is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto and Venice.
Anna started painting at the age of seventeen and she never stopped, even when she became the mother of two daughters. Born and raised in Venice, which has influenced her pleasure for the art that surrounded her. The house where she was born was full of frescoes and her mother was an art collector, both of famous artists, but was also a patron for new, emerging artists.
Anna always loves to create and experiment with new techniques.

Painting allows me to free what I have inside through a creative mean giving me a sense of freedom and liberation.
Creating art liberates my mind to express all the thoughts and feeling held captive within the confines of my imagination.
Painting also allows me to capture an image and transform it into what I see through the lens of my heart and seize it forever on canvas.
This brings me joy because it is the only way I can truly share the same emotions with others.
My work has always been influenced by my life in Venice, where I was born and lived for the majority of my life.
Venice for me is a very beautiful place, that gives a feeling of serenity, beauty and emotion, which has inspired generation and generations of artists and poets from all around the world. Anna was honored to have her paintings selected in 2014 at the Carrousel du Louvre, Salon International Art Exhibition in Paris, France.
Her works are held in private collections in Italy, Canada, Switzerland, China and USA .
