Giana grew up with the arts. Her sister, Julianne Palumbo, is a writer. They are granddaughters of two artists, a jewelry designer and an oil painter and sculptor. One of her fondest childhood memories is standing at an easel dressed in an over-sized smock and painting next to “Nonna”.
Giana graduated from Boston College with a BA in studio art and studied at Rhode Island School of Design. She worked as a paste up/layout artist and illustrator for a local newspaper. Her murals and hand painted home décor pieces are in many New England homes. She created a line of Domino bracelets with her original drawings. In addition, Giana has designed websites and newsletters.
Her work is comprised of acrylic landscapes, many of Guilford, CT, floral paintings, and pen and ink drawings. Giana invites you to visit her new ETSY shop.
