Hi, my name is Kiana Pino. Similar to other artists I’ve been passionate about art since I was younger, but at that time my medium took the form of intricate nail art. Once I got into school, I was able to start taking art classes which built up my skills set and my love for art grew exponentially. As a senior now, I’ve taken an art class every year at PRHS and this past summer I studied Studio Arts at St. Paul’s. Drawing and painting are my favorite mediums and I love to create works that not only are aesthetically pleasing, but have deep symbolic or emotional meaning. It always amazed me how art is a means to convey the images and feelings in your head and express them in a physical sense. I’ve always loved seeing the artist of the month with all the beautiful works displayed, and I’m very honored to have my own artwork up.
