Vanaja Cotroneo


I am a Toronto artist and most of my work is a visual narrative inspired by my extensive travels. All this is reflected in my paintings in the wide array of subject matter, created in my studio from my own photographs capturing those moments. I also enjoy painting plein-air, and sketching small watercolour and pen & ink paintings.

I have studied under many well-known art instructors, gradually developing my own style. At times I have been driven to paint abstracts, fascinated by the way the painting evolves, sometimes with a mind of its own!

I am a member of, and participate in the activities and shows of various artists organizations. My paintings have been exhibited and sold in a number of juried shows and other venues. I have also undertaken several commissions for portraits, landscapes, and abstracts.
