Giovanna Cattoi was born in Monte Argentario, near Rome, Italy. Studies led to an intuitive grasp of colour, movement and composition. Since moving to Australia, Giovanna has exhibited successfully across the country.
A visit to Cairns led to a fascination with the colour and beauty of underwater life, and Giovanna is now one of Australia's leading underwater artists. Her paintings are especially sought after in Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and the USA.
