The Unique Style of Kathrina Miccio
From the core of my being I must create.
Ideas, turn into pieces of originality.
I march to my own beat, and dance to my own rhythm.
Passion runs through my veins,
as emotions are fuel for my craft,
Dreams, ambitions, everything I LOVE.
Here is a glimpse of my soul, for a part of ME is in each piece I create.

KATHRINA MICCIO Painter
is a painter, native New Yorker, and part time resident of Vico Equense, Italy. Miccio’s background in the arts is a life long study and love for the visual expression.
Miccio’s 6 year’s of college earned her a Bachelor of Fine Arts , and Theater, and Education Degree from Wagner College, New York. Her first exhibit received notable recognition at “The Fine Art Gallery” at Wagner College.
Kathrina was asked to exhibit a show at "The Gibson Guitar Showroom Gallery" in New York. She named it Gibson Masters. It was a tremendous success with a nearly sold out show, and it was a star-studded night. Some guests included Actors James Gandolfini, Federico Castelluccio, Analyze That's Raymond Franza, American Idol's Constantine Maroulis, and New York Dolls Steve Conte. “Gibson Masters” received rave reviews from “The New York Daily News.” Miccio was honored at the “Artist of The Year Award Show”, and was showcased with an article in “Talent in Motion Magazine” 2007 and “The Long Island Exchange” in Cognacs Corner for her
Gibson Masters show.
She exhibited her Italian portraits and landscapes at “Salmagundi Club Art Exhibit – New York – "Visioni" (invited artist)”, juried show in New York City, September 2004.

Miccio primarily works in oil, acrylic, mixed media and watercolor. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. Each idea manifests in its own individual style.
