Cristina Sammarco was born in Paris in 1977. Engineer, she followed her passion, graduating in Painting at Brera Fine Arts Academy.

She lived in Milan, Rome and ten years ago she moved to her beloved island of Elba, where actually she’s living and working as visual artist. In these last years she has combined her art with teaching activity with that of art.

She never ceases to be inspired by salt and wind.
