Santina De Marco
My name is Santina De Marco and I was born in Imperia on 22 March 1967. I haven’t attended any art academy, I’m self-taught. I have been drawing since I was a child and over the years this passion has become stronger and stronger and has led me to take some courses in painting and drawing. So I made my debut in December 2002 doing a personal exhibition in an art gallery in my city, achieving a discreet and unexpected success
Subsequently I exhibited my works on the occasion of the gathering of vintage motor yachts in Imperia with other artists, then in May 2003 I participated in a collective exhibition in an art gallery, also in my country, entitled “We who lose time and we can’t wait “.

Recently I made paintings and decorations in a farmhouse in the Ligurian hinterland, a farmhouse that has maintained the traditions of painting and the characteristics of Ligurian villages. Space in many artistic and craft fields using different raw materials for the creation of unique artifacts. I have enriched my pictorial background by attending courses in nail art and Chinese micro painting, in order to emerge in the field of nail art, that is nail reconstruction and subsequent decoration. In addition, I was part of a theater company in Imperia of which, as well as an actress, I took care of both the sets and the make-up, I attended a professional make-up course at a school in Genoa and I graduated with top marks.
