Original Pet Portraits by Artist Cristina Sarno

Local mixed media artist and painter Cristina Sarno specializes in painting pet portraits with flair and originality. In addition to portraits, she also works in other mediums including silk screen, colorful pencil, graphite and charcoal drawing, and pen and ink with safe, non-toxic black walnut and sumac inks. Sarno also has her own arts and crafts company, Tina Sarno Company TSC.

Sarno recently relocated to Silvermine, Connecticut after years of living in Brooklyn, New York. Born and raised in New Canaan and Norwalk, she began painting from her imagination as a young child. “I’ve been an animal lover since childhood,” says Sarno. “I even raised chickens from chicks and had my chicken eggs I hatched. I brought them to my 4th grade science fair in elementary school, at East School, in New Canaan.”

She studied at Parsons School of Design in New York City to earn her BFA in Photography and in the intervening years experimented with many different mediums and subject matter, portrait photography, large scale expressionist paintings and even color and black and white printing/printmaking. She began this process as a college student in Vermont. 

While in New York, Sarno found herself designing imaginary album covers on the computer and dressing top fashion models at a major fashion label. Now that she’s back home, she will return her focus to the calm, reflective process of mixing paints, printing pictures and creating her world within the work.
