“I welcome all to my personal view of the world through my artistic vision. Life can be stressful and my objective is to offer a mini mental vacation while viewing my artwork. My personal challenge is to share my stories and view of the world – perhaps if I’m lucky, in a more beautiful and luscious way than real life. I do this using my own photography, my imagination, or bringing photographic elements together until I accomplish my goal.
My subject matter is varied and includes floral (my passion and strength), seashell still life’s, still life’s, and waterscapes (boats and leaves on pond). I use the Old Masters style mostly, but adapted my own way. I am a member of the Canadian Glaze Oil Society whose members are devotees of the Traditional Old Masters style. My feeling is that artwork rendered well will always stand the test of time and will be a good investment.
I currently live in Oakville. I am a full time artist and paint for the pleasure it brings me and for my clients’ enjoyment. I have many artistic goals and am fascinated by the endless possibilities art brings my way.”
Adriana Rinaldi lives in Oakville, Ontario. She was born not too far away, in Hamilton ON, but moved to Italy with her family when she was very small. Even at that young age, her Italian experience had a profound artistic affect on her. When she was a child in Italy, she kept busy in her countryside home by drawing whatever she could. When she was 13, she returned to Canada and continued her artwork as a hobby throughout her high school years. Adriana studied to be an Executive Secretary at Sheridan College and studied Purchasing night courses at Humber, then worked in that field for many years. During this time, she joined and was very active with The Springbank Artists, in Mississauga.
Adriana participates in art events throughout Ontario, and in a very short period since leaving her job, has achieved a successful livelihood as a professional artist. Because this is no small feat, the CGOS asked Adriana to be a Mentor of Commercial Events for our organization. The quality of the artwork, combined with business savvy has spelled much success for Adriana.
