Artist Bio: Majella Pinto was born in the port town of Mangalore on the West Coast of India. Her adventure with Art began at the age of 5 when she studied drawing and painting under the tutelage of a local artist. She studied oil under another artist when she moved to California.
Majella’s style is Impressionist, an influence of Van Gogh and Monet. She loves to read about the Dutch Grand Masters, visit museums that house their art and reproduce some of their paintings.
Majella also loves to explore new lands and cultures and these experiences becomes an inspiration that is brought to life on a canvas.
