Kanella Ciraco is an internationally known Fluid and Resin Artist born in Toronto, Ontario Canada.
She has been working with acrylics and resin for the last 4+ years. Kanella is self-taught and shares her knowledge on many social media platforms. You can find many of her tutorials on her YouTube channel “Kanella Ciraco Art”.

She loves to use different colors in her artwork but her favorite color will always be blue! She creates many pieces using shades of blue which remind her of the oceans in Greece where her family is from.
She has also been featured in the United Colours of Design Magazine many times.

Kanella’s favorite tool to use when creating art is her hair dryer! She has learned how to manipulate the paint the way she wants to create beautiful compositions in her paintings. She shares this knowledge by teaching in person classes from her home studio. She also teaches classes within the USA.
Kanella currently resides in London, Ontario with her husband, two children and her two Siberian Husky pups Juno & Echo!
In Kanella’s classes you will learn all about paint consistency, how to use your hair dryer, how to create the perfect compositions and MORE!
